A new book of Marilyn Monroe's "notes to herself, letters, even poems" also includes a photo of her bookshelf. Apparently she liked Hemingway, Steinbeck, and Beckett — but no female writers.

I'm sorry but am I missing something about the fact that she supposedly does not have any female writers on her bookshelf? Is that meant to imply that she didn't support women, women's issues or feminism? If so thats gross assumption and probably a stretch specially considering that how little we know of her personal life.

I could easily estimate that 99% of the books I own are my male authors. So does that mean I am less of a feminist for it? Want to make any assumptions about me for it?
