I was born in ancient times at the end of the world in a patriarchal, Catholic and conservative family. No wonder that by age five I was a raging feminist, although the term had not reached Chile yet, so nobody knew what the heck was wrong with me. I would soon find out that there was a high price to pay for my freedom and for questioning the patriarchy, but I was happy to pay it because for every blow that I received I was able to deliver two.

That's pretty interesting. Great post! :) I'm not entirely feminist, but with a little more Maury I might get there. xD

I love Isabel Allende's writing, and HAPPY NEW YEAR, XINE!!! My best wishes sweetie.
