“Fear is a question. What are you afraid of and why? Our fears are a treasure house of self knowledge if we explore them.”
Marilyn French was a writer and a feminist activist who once declared, “My goal in life is to change the entire social and economic structure of Western civilization, to make it a feminist world.” She wrote many books, but is best known for her 1977 debut novel, “The Women’s Room,” about one woman’s journey to self discovery after a bitter divorce. This book became a best seller and sold over 20 million copies and was translated into 20 languages.
They say reading this book will change your life and even though it was written in 1977, the message of women finding their own identity versus living the lives of their husbands is just as important today.
