Today is August 18, 2019 -
I received more comments to my article last week than any previous week in the past three years. Most comments read something like, “good article, but Letty Cottin Pogrebin is a woman.”
I was really hoping to brush off this mistake as a typo, or at least flippantly suggest that I did it on purpose to see who was actually reading the article, but I will come clean. I did not know who this woman is when I chose to quote her.
So, I thank everyone who wrote to me to educate me about this author, activist, national lecturer, and a founding editor of Ms. Magazine.
I’ll try harder next time.
