The Politics of Personal Writing: Jessica Friedmann, Maria Tumarkin and Stephanie Convery

Podcast from FWF16: The Politics of Personal Writing with Jessica Friedmann.

In 1969, Carol Hanisch wrote The Personal Is Political, arguing that personal problems are political problems requiring collective solutions. This concept resonated through the feminist movement and continues to inform. However there are costs to personal writing and women are often pushed to reveal all regardless of their desire to take a less confessional approach.
