    A fair amount (of bias).

    The double bind for women is that we are supposed to be able to look as she looks in that picture – frazzled or something – so as to be non-scary,
    and then we get nailed for that too, if we actually do it or can be depicted as having done it.

    Ah, gah, it’s awful isn’t it. I posted a pic of Susan B. Anthony awhile ago and it looks like they got her in a similar pose. It’s here: http://alterwords.wordpress.com/2008/04/16/good-vibrations/

    You can also see that great pic of Emmeline Pankhurst getting arrested. My Aunt Helen is on that post too, but you can ignore her!
