Just for the record, my grown daughter, an aspiring writer, agrees with the "devalued" premise and singled out the romance industry as one that gets no love. When I tried to explain why I thought that was the case, I got a "You are so f---ing wrong," the first time she's ever cursed at me like that. So don't ask why I thought that was the case. I'm zipping my lips.

Why is this short piece split up into three pages? It would have all easily fit on one page. Also, this is the first time I've heard "Gone with the Wind" described as a YA novel. And what does it mean that "literature and movies by women are devalued at a time when the most profitable franchises in bookstores and at the multiplex are by women?" Doesn't that statement contradict itself? Devalued by whom? Certainly not by the readers and moviegoers, the ones who count the most.
