“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” – Alice Walker
There is an interesting debate happening online, and it’s highlighted by the “Miss Representation” Sundance documentary about the media’s derogatory depictions of women.
The trailer shows media talking about Hillary Clinton “looking haggard and 92.” It shows a clip of Sarah Palin being asked by a reporter whether she has breast implants. It shows a panel of men on a Sunday morning news program talking about Nancy Pelosi and whether she’s had plastic surgery. Then it shows Marc Rudov saying the only downside to having a woman in the Oval Office would be the “PMS and mood swings.”
