Women writers have to work four or five times harder than men: Isabel Allende – Times of India

“When I say that I was a feminist in kindergarten, I am not exaggerating,” writes 78-year-old Isabel Allende, the world’s most widely read Spanish-language author, in her new book, The Soul of a Woman. But it’s far from a boring treatise on feminism and more about lived experience, with engaging anecdotes ranging from her penchant for killing male lovers in her books to her research into online dating. In an interview to Neelam Raaj, she talks about how an India visit changed her, and why it’s never too late to love The Soul of a Woman looks at feminism through the lens of your own family. Why did you choose the part-memoir style rather than a treatise, say like Germaine Greer whose The Female Eunuch was your first feminist read?I had no intention of writing a manifesto.

Dolce&Gabbana seeks over $600M damages from two US bloggers

The Milan fashion house Dolce&Gabbana has filed a defamation suit in an Italian court seeking over $600 million in damages from two U.S. fashion bloggers who reposted anti-Asian comments attributed to one of the designers that led to a boycott by Asian consumers. The suit was filed in Milan civil court in 2019 but only became public this week when the bloggers posted about it on their Instagram account, Diet Prada. Their feed is widely followed in the fashion world for its cutting commentary on unoriginality in designs and on social issues. “This whole case is a way of trying to silence Diet Prada, and to silence Tony (Liu) and Lindsay (Schuyler) personally,” said Susan Scafidi, director of the Fashion Law Institute at Fordham Law School, which is coordinating the blogg...
