So I was looking up whether Ursula K. Le Guin was in influenced by Terry Pratchett when she wrote Tehanu when I came across this transcript of a talk by him. Pretty interesting and if you're like me and miss Terry with a heartaching intensity, the comedy is like coming back home. This is before he publishes Equal Rites two years later, and before Le Guin subverts her patriarchal world 5-ish years later with Tehanu.

Who knows where a woman begins and ends? Listen, mistress, I have roots, I have roots deeper than this island. Deeper than the sea, older than the rising of the lands. I go back into the dark. I go back into the dark! Before the moon I was. No one knows, no one knows, no one can say what I am, what a woman is, a woman of power, a woman's power, deeper than the roots of trees, deeper than the roots of islands, older than the Making, older than the moon. Who dares ask questions of the dark? Who'll ask the dark its name?
-Ursula K. Le Guin, Tehanu

"But my soul can't live in that narrow place—this for that, tooth for tooth, death for life... there is a freedom beyond that. Beyond payment, retribution, redemption—beyond all the bargains and the balances, there is freedom."
—Tehanu, Ursula K. Le Guin

A, evet. Biz değerliyiz. Güçsüz olduğumuz sürece... Bunu ilk öğrendiğim zamanı hatırlıyorum! Kossil beni tehdit etmişti - beni, Mezarlar'ın Tek Rahibesi'ni. Ve ben, çaresiz olduğumu fark etmiştim. Şeref benimdi, ama bir erkek tarafından, Tanrıkral tarafından verilen güç ondaydı. Ah bu beni çok kızdırdı! ve korkuttu. Bir keresinde Tarlakuşu'yla bunu konuştuk. Tarlakuşu 'Erkekler kadınlardan neden korkar?' dedi.
Eğer bir insanın kuvveti sadece bir diğerinin zayıflığıysa, korku içinde yaşar. dedi Ged. / Yerdeniz IV.

I just finished Tehanu and I'm Thinking about Ursula K Le Guin and how she was so open to criticism and constantly, publically adjusting her opinions.....
there's something so cool about reading the first Earthsea trilogy and just accepting that this is a Generically Sexist Fantasy World and then getting to Tehanu and Le Guin going 'okay i made that world sexist by consequence of uncritically using fantasy tropes... now let's examine those tropes and that sexism'
Or the essay she wrote after the succes of The Left Hand Of Darkness defending (among other things) the masculine pronouns she used for the genderless Gethenians - and then years later publishing an annotated, amended version of that essay where she says her past self was wrong.
Seeing someone admit their fallibility is just so refreshing. I'm sure there were things she was stubborn about but so far I'm really impressed by her willingness to change her mind and to admit that she was wrong about something.

The fire danced in her eyes. The flames swam, flared up, sank away, brightened again against the sooty stone, against the dark sky, against the pale sky, the gulfs of evening, the depths of air and light beyond the world. Flames of yellow, orange, orange-red, red tongues of flame, flame-tongues, the words she could not speak.
-Ursula K. Le Guin, Tehanu
