Capturing the feminine mystique

Variety:

"Women have been writing men, and vice versa, in Hollywood since the days of Anita Loos, Francis Marion, Ruth Gordon and Dorothy Parker.

But in television recently, a particular female orientation in such ABC shows as "Desperate Housewives," "Grey's Anatomy," "Brothers & Sisters" and "Men in Trees" -- with their complicated, beautifully flawed women characters -- once again brings up the age-old question: How important is the female writer's point of view, and what do male writers bring to the mix?"
