"It was horrible to be a girl then," legendary cultural satirist Fran Lebowitz says of growing up in the 1950s. "I got used to the idea of injustice at a very young age."

In her interview with MAKERS, Lebowitz's says her parents took no interest in her dream of becoming a writer.

"Since they assumed I would get married, it didn't matter," she explains. "It was beneath their level of concern."

Nevertheless, Lebowitz's confidence and determination never wavered. She would be hired by Andy Warhol as a columnist for Interview magazine when she was 21.
