I agree with everything you say in this awesome article except the indication that it’s unique to our culture. Throughout history and throughout the world, women have been relegated to second class and have never excelled in the arts in the same numbers as men. I believe our culture now is probably more open to women and our talents than any culture in history, but there are still too many men who, as you point out, won’t read what a woman writes or listen to what a woman says. Just the nature of the beast, I guess.
