You describe a lot of your writing as feminist. How do you think feminism today is different than it was thirty years ago — or is it different at all?
30 years ago I was 5 and didn’t have much of a feminist consciousness. Or, rather, I had the same feminist consciousness: I liked to wear high heel shoes I couldn’t walk in, with a face full of makeup I couldn’t quite apply, making everyone in the neighborhood act out scenes from CHiPs with me and I always had to the be the kidnapped hitchhiker on rollerskates, and I got pissed if you took any of that away from me and I still do today.
