For you, Ella — Women writing in English from the Wikipedia.
For you Ella, what I read in Ms. Magazine in 1973 or so, in Junior High. A poem, I have kept all these years: http://faithwilding.refugia.net/waiting.html
For you Ella, some virtual flowers!
For you, about one year in… when getting through school and work would be one of the hardest things I would ever do. In those days, there was only one Women’s History elective. I took it. The only thing I would have done over? Was take Art Studio instead of Art History — I felt there wouldn’t be any jobs if I did that. It was a fabulous Liberal Arts Education. It really was, even though I was a grown-up and not in dorms by the time I did it. For my MA, I was able to pay for it as I went. Thank heavens. Because “no student loans” is better than that first ten years I had to pay them off!
Key women I admire: Georgia O’Keefe, Amelia Earhart, Dorothy Parker (my mother’s favorite) oh, I could go on… and on.
CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU!
Revisits UCSB now, and sees how 1988 was the start of a department…
