Your Sept. 5 op-ed page layout created a telling juxtaposition. Blake Dodge’s Point of View, “To be taken seriously in the age of sexism,” appeared just above a 1985 Doonesbury cartoon about men’s and women’s roles in child care.
In 30 years, it seems, nothing has changed. Women and men who think life is different now from 30, 50 or 80 years ago need to pay attention to the indicators.
It’s still OK not only to think, but to say out loud, that the role of women is to be attractive but not intellectually competent. And Dodge is not wrong.
