Jia Tolentino‘s Trick Mirror is a compilation of essays on marriage, literary heroines, and the “cult of the difficult woman”. Ronan Farrow is best known for his investigative reporting on the sexual abuse allegations of Harvey Weinstein and the toll it had on the women who accused him of that abuse. Together, Tolentino and Farrow have written about the conservatorship of Britney Spears and her fight to regain control of her life. In this WIT Series conversation, Tolentino and Farrow discuss what these articles and essays have in common: the ability of women to have control over their own lives.
