Female Force!

I’m not really sure what to think about this.  On one had, having Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Caroline Kennedy as comic book *ahem…sorry* graphic novel charcters really dumbs down the role of women in politics.  Why should these women have to be entertaining just for people to want to read about them?  On the other hand, I understand that these stories can potentially reach people who otherwise wouldn’t pick up a biography or a newspaper.  And let’s face it, they are definitely a nice alternative to the skimpily-dressed, sex goddess females that are normally found in these types of publications.  The books are sold for $3.99 each, which I guess makes them worth buying if for no other reason but the novelty.

What do you think?  Would you buy Female Force books–for yourself or some other impressionable youngster?

Women Make Less. Duh.


Here’s a really informative (and really depressing) interactive graph by The New York Times which shows how women make less in practically every profession except as Special Education Teachers and Postal Clerks.  

Why Is Her Paycheck Smaller?

It is hard to believe that a society which insists it has such a liberated and modern female population is consistently, blatetnly sexist when it comes to women’s wages.  According to this article from The New York Times, 51% of American women are living without a spouse.  They are supporting themselves and in some cases a family, on their own.  Yet, with little exception, they are being forced to do so with less money than a man in the same position would make.
