Insufficient data to comment. I can't say I know what women writers look like, en masse.
This is the problem; agreed. And I doubt whether Ms. Dunham knows that the--ahem--body of women writers looks like either. I'm hoping that the magazine provides more context for her words; I find her statement particularly disheartening because I'm preparing a talk on the sexual politics of literature that's drawn from an essay about how "the muse speaks," which argues that the muse has been speaking (writing) for years! I would really like to think we women have moved beyond the muse category and that one doesn't have to be the "socially rejected quirky girl" to establish one's self as a writer.
* knows "what" the body of women writers looks like . . .
Is this the girl from the show girls? If so, hmmm.Conversely writers manage to have boyfriends so that argue ent fails.
