Different from what? From mystery writing? From Greek epic poetry? From biostatistical analysis?
I guess you missed my point. While it's possible
to separate out "women's literature" from literature in general, it's an arbitrary decision to do so.
OK, I see your point. I disagree with you. I think women really do bring something different to the table. (Obviously there is overlap between any genres or groupings.)
I think the people in the Women's Studies department would disagree with you too.

Nah, I think most people can tell a male voice from a female voice. With exceptions, of course.
