You and I are the only ones who can tell those stories, because we are the only ones who have lived them. By telling them—by telling our real, true woman’s story—we will challenge and correct all the myths and made-up stories about women’s lives. We will show that women’s lives aren’t lived as men have taught us to imagine them. Our stories are more than idle gossip, family chitchat, more than old wives’ tales—although they are these things, too, and isn’t that wonderful?”
