Short biography
Marilyn French became famous when her groundbreaking 1977 novel "The Women's Room" became an international bestseller. This book and her other works focused on the details of women's lives in a male-dominated society. Carol Jenkins, president of the Women's Media Center, said of Marilyn French, "Both as a scholar and novelist, she brandished a razor sharp writing instrument on the patriarchy, but privately she was gentle and funny."
