Those female writers

"I'm a feminist, and God knows I'm loyal to my sex, and you must remember that from my very early days, when this city was scarcely safe from buffaloes, I was in the struggle for equal rights for women. But when we paraded through the catcalls of men and when we chained ourselves to lampposts to try to get our equality-- dear child, we didn't foresee those female writers." --Dorothy Parker, The Paris Review Interviews Vol. 1
