    "The grande dame of English Literature -- some of her most perceptive, most revelatory stories, beautifully repackaged For more than four decades, Doris Lessing's work has observed the passion and confusion of human relations, holding a mirror up to our selves in her unflinching dissection of the everyday. From the magnificent 'To Room Nineteen', a study of a dry, controlled middle class marriage 'grounded in intelligence', to the shocking 'A Woman on the Roof', where a workman becomes obsessed with a pretty sunbather, this superb collection of stories, written over four decades, from the 1950s to the 1990s bears stunning witness to Doris Lessing's perspective on the human condition."

    it is true that men have to stop being the 'agents of blame' and start being the 'agents of change' however, what is more often overlooked is how chauvinists have behaved in the past 3 decades (women are inferior; women can't do that); people have only looked at how the feminists behaved. to solve any problem, however, most people believe we must start with accountability. in canada, groups now call 'violence against women' - men's violence against women b/c in the majority of cases, men have initiated it (and while men are more often victims of violence, it's often violence initiated by other men). so i think it will be interesting to see what will happen. in other countries, contrary to men to popular opinion, we call it 'violence against women' without ever mentioning the perps and most articles written on the subject are in passive tense - not active (as in the man strangled the woman). there are many other instances where men arent' blamed directly (women's rising incidence of HIV), men's gender roles (women tend to stay away from defining them), and the fact that women initiate 3/4 of divorce --- if it were the ohter way around - men initiated divorce - women would be reemed for being 'bad wives' -- i realize i have just mentioned 3 fairly taboo topics and i apologize if it offends anyone. anyway, no doubt men have to and must participate in a movement towards equality in order for it to be obtained. how to do this is the question...
