Is it just me, or does everyone else notice that women who make it to some reasonable level of power in North America are painted as either sluts, junkies, airheads, bitches, witches* or some other awfully negative female stereotype?
I don't know...is this because we tend to elevate poor role models to power or that we are still threatened by powerful women? Or both? Either way, it seems to be getting worse, not better.
* I was listening to some talk radio show in a cab the other day, where people were calling in about Hillary Clinton's cackle...ostensibly, this is big news, too.
