On women artists:

"Remember, no one can make you feel inferior without your consent." (Eleanor Roosevelt)

I shared Suzanne's letter with my painter daughter. "It seems to me, Dad," she said, "this is not a letter about the subjugation of women artists... it isn't a feminist issue... it's a self-esteem issue. Thriving as an artist--in all of its forms--our entitlement to our lives and livelihood, our imagination, our believed limitations, our expectations and dreams for our work, our professionalism, our perceived competition and, most importantly, our JOY, requires the serving of an eviction notice to the voice of doubt squatting inside us."
