Well, people often make a feminist argument about that, saying that it’s an attempt to diminish the female aspects of history or culture or art, to sort of separate them. It’s the same with “women’s magazines” or “women’s literature,” where we imply that what women do is somehow less.Yeah! Get rid of that “women’s.” At the same time, you have to identify yourself to be able to break down those barriers to identity, so it’s a sort of catch-22.
