Stacy R. Horth-Neubert
WLALA President 2016-2017
Over the last few weeks, I have read with dismay news stories that feel like they were pulled out of another era entirely:
· An anonymous person or group paid for a billboard in North Carolina that declares "Real men provide[.] Real women appreciate it." And a whole bunch of folks are defending its message.
· An op-ed on Fox News – written by a woman – creatively employed everyday "busy woman" rhetoric to argue that the key to a happy marriage is for the wife to acquiesce to her husband's points of view.
· There is a running debate among commentators over what women should do, if anything, to support Kellyanne Conway in the face of sexist comments and ridicule about her appearance.
Let me pause over that last one for a minute. On a personal level, I disagree with Ms. Conway on almost every issue and in almost every way. But one way in which I always will side with her -- and every woman -- is in opposition to sexism. That is simply not an acceptable way to disagree with someone. Period. It's 2017, for crying out loud!
