“We forget too easily: woman as an intellectual has existed in appreciable numbers only for the last sixty or seventy years. We know stories of her and about her, but her history — a history of incredible exertion and courage, but also of incredible self-denial and renunciation of the claims of her nature — has still to be written.” – Christa Wolf, Lecture on Poetics, University of Frankfurt, 1982. [p. vii. Martha Graham – When Dance Became Modern.]
