THE FUTURE IS FEMALE
· 11. December 2020
For thousands of years, men and women have been reading books mostly (mostly, mostly) written by men. What does it matter? you might ask. Ancient Greek philosophy, religious texts, love or war novels, science fiction, true or fictional contemporary stories are not all misogynous, are they? No, indeed, they are not... not all of them. But all those thoughts, those true or fictitious stories that are thought, imagined, written by men, would have been thought, imagined and written in a totally...
‘"Normal" people are disgusted with feminism,’ said one woman. ‘What do you call 'normal' people, please?’ I asked her. ‘It's quite simple,’ said a man, ‘normal people are the majority.’ Ah, ah, ah! Thank you, sir, it's good to laugh! Once my laughter subsided, I asked myself several questions. The first one: Am I "normal"?

We do live in a men's world and it is high time women were allowed to sing it.
This book is a survey of the American film industry and particularly Hollywood. Basically, it's not pretty, really, really not pretty at all... especially for women, whether they are storytellers, directors or actresses.
I have always worked to earn a living for myself and my children. So far, nothing extraordinary. I have a physically exhausting job, which requires carrying a lot of weight at arm's length. Arthrosis is present in all my joints. For 15 years, it has found my body very welcoming! I feel like a rusty iron robot. Six years ago, when I started writing the novels that had always invaded my head, I had to write them at night, on Sunday afternoons after work, and every hour I could pick up here and...
I read Olivia, by Olivia in its very first 1949 edition. I made researches to know who Olivia could be and I found: Dorothy Bussy (1865-1960), English, published three works, only one of them was a novel: Olivia in 1949. She has it published under the pseudonym Olivia. In my 1949 edition, the name Dorothy Bussy is not even mentioned.
