Honor Moore Combats “Male Approval Desire”

Last week, Honor Moore, editor of “Poems from the Women’s Movement,” hosted a poetry reading at Saint Peter’s Church in Manhattan–bringing together generations of renowned poets to celebrate the release of the Library of America anthology.

In this video interview, Moore explained how “Male Approval Desire” (or M-A-D) has hobbled women authors. She was joined by Susan Griffin, Toi Derricotte, Joan Larkin, Jean Valentine, Eileen Myles, Fran Winant, and Anne Waldman.

GalleyCat interviewed a number of these poets, getting their thoughts on publishing, feminism, and writing during the recession, including Erica Jong–who talked about the lack of publishing parity.
