Hi all, I would like some help finding a quote I read a few years ago. It was something like "A woman sits alone in a room. The door is locked and nobody knocks." I remember it as being a short sentence or two kind of standing on its own, not exactly a poem.

I can't remember where I read it and it's bugging me. When I read the article on the blue this morning about women's time, it came to mind immediately.

Does anybody know what I'm talking about? I keep thinking it's something from Ursula K. Le Guin but I haven't been able to find it. It was saying something about what it means to be free, I think.

I don't know the answer, but if you're thinking Le Guin that brings it into a SF context, at which point it sounds like some kind of riff on the Shortest Horror Story: The last man on earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door.
