The dialectics of sexism; or, words falling on deaf ears

Women Are People, Too

Hi Media Girl - I am new to your site and let me start by saying what a blessing it is at this moment when I am feeling overcome with anger and grief at the state of women's lives in this country . I am so with you - know that you are not alone in your thinking.

I grew up with a great deal of hope and enthusiasm, buoyed by the recent successes of the women's movement. Now I feel utterly abandoned by my government, not to mention the mainstream media and corporate America. I feel that we are being purposefully "invisibilized" and in significant danger of losing our voice completely. Blogs like yours are not only informative and entertaining, they are a necessity. Keep up the good fight!
