As to Doctor Johnson,
a good source of differing opinions
would be
English-speaking published writers
who happen to be women.
There were such in Johnson's day, in his native land,
and frequently these writers struggled for the merest validations
to which Johnson felt himself entitled.


Actually, though, the first thing that came to MY mind
was Dame Ngaio Marsh, bless her, who lived in a different century
and was raised far around the globe from the land
that her English language came from.
And I recall a piece of a quote from Dame Ngaio:

"... the reason we write for money [this may be paraphrase here]
is because
we've jolly well got to. [...]"
