Marie Claire (South Africa) - - GENDER REPORT -

‘I find my­self sort of con­sciously GIRD­ING MY LOINS FOR BAT­TLE, so to speak, when I get ready to pub­lish a piece TAK­ING ON SEX­ISM OR PA­TRI­ARCHY IN SOME FORM. And, of course, its man­i­fes­ta­tions are so preva­lent, and there’s so much to be writ­ten, that some­times I sim­ply can’t face the thought of the hos­til­ity.Then I wait and hope some­one else will write some­thing else first, be­fore I grit my teeth and dive in.’
