Among my friends there is a married woman who is a writer. I once heard a man tell her that she needed to hurry up and have a child in order to develop her writing style. I remember being astounded and furious, although I couldn't think of anything to say at the time. Who gave him the right, first of all, to imply that every woman should have a child? And where did he get the idea that having a child could somehow influence a woman's writing? There was no way, without seeing her work, that he could tell a woman she should write like a mother. In fact, what right did he have to claim that any woman should be a mother?
