UNC student Blake Dodge wrote an essay on subtle sexism that went viral and brought hundreds of comments, mostly negative
Dodge says she actually appreciates the criticism: “It was a good lesson for me as a writer, and I wouldn’t change a single comma of the column. It shed light on an issue that doesn’t get a whole lot of attention”
Responses from women in college and women well into their professional careers cleared any doubts that she was seeing a problem that wasn’t there, she says
The Wright brothers and Harry Truman, both subject of books by David McCullough, exemplify an America of opportunity for the average person. That America is giving way to one dominated by the very rich while the middle class and working poor struggle to get ahead.
