SPECIAL TREAT! WMC “LIVE”
WITH ROBIN MORGAN!
It’s a special treat to be interviewed by a dear friend, long-time colleague, and inspiring visionary; it was also an honor to be invited to share my ideas with her on “WMC LIVE with Robin Morgan,” which regularly features fascinating and brave women from around the world. My favorite features, though, are those in which Robin takes on language. In this show she is particularly astute when she suggests we abandon the term “cougar” and replace it with “Colette” as in the older major French writer who regularly took young lovers, much to their delight as well as her own. — Suzanne Braun Levine
