She said what?!’
a new item to meappropriatestyle
featuring statements from outspoken women:
opinions, outlooks, observations
which they were more than willing to share.
American writer Dorothy Parker:
poet, short story writer, satirist, activist
contributor to Vanity Fair, Esquire, The New York (which she help found)-
was actively engaged in the social issues of her time:
equality, freedom, civil liberties.

Dorothy Parker, at her craft
Known within the New York City literary circuit (and further flung)
for her scathing wit, sharp remarks and barbed retorts-
she was a woman of fierce talent and spirit.
She wrote and said what she thought/felt.
Admired by friends and critics alike, her writings/comments were
provocative, never sugar coated, sometimes bitter to swallow
and worth a moment to ponder.
A “She said what?!” quote by
Dorothy Parker (1893 – 1967)
