Edith’s Story

You go home and write furiously. Pouring out your heart — and some excellent arguments — you craft a thoughtful, well-written, moving article. You send it out the very next day.

One problem: no one will print it. Time after time, you’re told that women are too emotional for this sort of journalism.

You consider re-submitting the same article under a man’s name. But you know that women are just as good as men. Why can’t you write as yourself?

On the other hand, this may be the sacrifice you have to make — for the good of all.

Do you re-submit, or try helping another way?
