I’ve noticed that women write about themselves in relationship to others, and men write about themselves in relationship to the world.

As a consequence it seems that women and children are often secondary in stories written by or about men because women and children are peripheral to the male experience.

I have a suspicion that the only reason women are included in plays written by or about men is because plays have to be transmitted verbally through language, and women are often a requirement when men wish to express their relationship with lust.

Am I way off?
