I've long been a fan of women writers. Jodi Picoult (who is mentioned in the article) is one of my favorites, and I've read all her books (and reread many of them). Holmes talks about women who write well and how their books are often passed off as "chick lit." She talks about a type of bias in the literary world for certain writers and how these books are often overlooked.
Take a look at this article and then tell me who some of your favorite women writers are. One of my all time favorite women writers who may have been put into the category of chick lit is Melissa Banks. If you haven't read The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing, you must. It's AWESOME!
