"Women and Honor" began as Rich's reaction to having been subject to emotional manipulation by a woman therapist and ended up considering the issue in terms that were "no longer personal." Whether unconsciously inherited from the oppressor's myths or reinvented in the image of "the so-called common language," a lie in a conversation between women is particularly dangerous because it "Inscribes with its unreturning stylus/the isolation it denies." Masked as terms of connection, such a lie actually transmits like a virus the "loneliness of the liar / living in the formal network of the lie." Silences in conversations of bad faith entrap and endanger just as well as out-and-out lies.
