"what magazine are you working for? it’ll be good to do something regular and to make money, probably. i was reading about the gynaeceum—the ‘women’s quarters’ or space, in antiquity, in the interior of a married household where a woman and her maidservants spent almost all of their time…like the original iteration of privacy, in some ways. and i was reminded of your practice of not leaving your apartment for days in the winter and basically making it a de facto gynaeceum, except that marc gets to be there too. and instead of maidservants you have like, feminist friends who come to visit you. but anyway maybe it’ll be nice to leave your ladies’ quarters? especially now that the weather is getting decent."
"is it because women want to make use of what is personal for them — to make it matter? to give the personal they’ve been confined and restricted to real currency and value?"
