Good reply! Fair question then.

Poor wording if anything on my part. I was interested in why Wright was less involved in feminism as an adult when she had written about resenting the sexist treatment she (and other women of her milieu) experienced as a young person, keeping in mind her willingness to support a cause, as seen in her environmental and indigenous activism. The question is about her engagement with feminism, without commenting on her other activism.

"In Half a Lifetime, Wright relates her bitterness at realising the different destinies open to boys and girls and yet as an adult she devoted herself to environmental and indigenous causes, particularly after she stopped writing poetry. Do you have any idea why she didn’t invest herself in the feminist movement?" I think this question is sad, like the social issues are ranked or something.
