Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, RIP

Conservative thinker and professor at nearby Emory University Elizabeth Fox-Genovese died a couple of days ago, I just learned via Jody Bottum. I once received a letter from her husband, ex-marxoid Eugene Genovese, back in the days when I was in the habit of pestering intellectual celebrities with correspondence.

There's been next to no coverage of her passing in the press. A notice in the local Atlanta paper, something in the Chronicle of Higher Education, several National Review comments, and a sporting encomium at Huffington Post. A quick check of the blogs and yep: too many farewells to surf at once. The blogosphere to the rescue again.

Have a quote:

Feminists expect children to fit into the nooks and crannies of women's lives the way women have traditionally fitted into the nooks and crannies of men's. But when motherhood is demoted from the center of women's lives to a parenthesis, children are demoted as well. The real struggle is not between women and men, but between children and work. The real losers in these conflicts are children.
