From Dutch NOS TV:
In New York, the feminist US American author Marilyn French has died. She was 79 years old. In 1977, French published her first work, The Women’s Room, a partially autobiographical novel about an oppressed woman. Worldwide, over 20 million copies of it were sold.
She was unable to find a publisher in the USA for her last book, In the name of Friendship, in 2006. It was published in the Netherlands then. After this proved to be a success, it was published in the US after all.
