|A Symposium of women writers / Cynthia Ozick, Lois Gould, Jill Robinson, Muriel Rukeyser, and Ellen Moers.||
A symposium of women writers taped on March 16, 1976 at the Library of the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center, New York. The symposium was held in celebration of the publication of Ellen Moers' "Literary women" and was sponsored by Doubleday. Following the initial remarks of each panelist, the audience, consisting exclusively of women involved in the writing world, enters into dialogue with the panel on the implications of the term "woman writer" and whether there is in fact a distinctly female sensibility which in writing can be best expressed by a female author. The panel consists of writers Cynthia Ozick, Lois Gould, Jill Robinson, Muriel Rukeyser, and Ellen Moers and was moderated by Elizabeth Janeway. Additional statements from the floor were made by Erica Jong, Jane Lazarre, Vivian Gornick, and Nona Balakian. Betty Prashker, editorial director of the Doubleday Publishing Group, introduces the panel. Recorded by Manya LaBruja. Produced by Lin Harris for WBAI.
