What do you hope will be different for the women in your family in 50 years’ time?
EW: In 50 years, my five nieces and one nephew will be celebrating landmark birthdays: the youngest will be turning 50. They’ll have inherited our roles as family storytellers and remembrancers; inherited, too, the detritus of our lives, at least those of us that have shuffled off the coil: houses, endless piles of stuff.
As part of 4th Estate’s month-long celebration of women’s writing, we’re bringing you personal picks from the 4th Estate team. Today’s variety of choices are from Louise Haines, Lottie Fyfe, Jordan Mulligan and Sarah Thickett.
