Hillary Clinton and Audrey Tomason photoshopped…
I would say this does not even dignify a comment (like at least if they had photoshopped a few burquas on them, you would still know women had been present…), but actually it should provoke a more vociferous reaction than it is getting….
And it looks like it’s tough to cut a break in children’s literature as well
One of the findings of the study is that the sexism is more prevalent when the characters are animals. This brings to mind something I have observed when watching nature programs: all animals are “he” until proven otherwise (this is applicable for female as well as male reporters, scientists etc), and even after proven otherwise. And when the focus is male/female mixed groups of animals, the focus is preponderently on male behavior, even when females are quite dominant as is the case with lions.
And just to ensure that I keep this on topic (one of them anyway), it seems that being a “Queen Bee” in the work place is not necessarily a good thing:
Imagine, a Queen Bee is a woman who exhibits male characteristics in the workplace! What does that say about Queen Bees in the hive?
