“The story we are told of women is not this one.
The story of women is the story of life, of foundering into another. A slight deviation: longing into founder and being unable to. Being left alone in the foundering, and taking things into one’s hands: rat poison, the wheels of a Russian train. Even the smoother and gentler story is still just a modified version of the above.”
