Doris Grumbach: Her Novels, Essays, and Literary Criticism Explored the Social and Psychic Hardships of Women

From a New York Times obit by Robert D. McFadden headlined “Doris Grumbach, Author Who Explored Women’s Plight, Dies at 104”:

Doris Grumbach, who in novels, essays and literary criticism explored the social and psychic hardships of women trapped in repressive families or disintegrating marriages, and who, as modern feminism came of age in the 1970s and ’80s, portrayed lesbian characters and themes in a positive light that was then unusual in mainstream fiction, died on Friday in Kennett Square, Pa. She was 104.
