    Well worth the read but probably as context afterwards.

The picture alone makes me uneasy.

Rebecca Traister made a similar point that stuck with me:

    There is a study that was just done recently by a researcher who found that 50 percent of women who experience harassment leave their jobs within two years of experiencing that harassment. When the harassment is particularly grave, that's 80 percent, and many of them leave their professions altogether.

    We can't imagine what the world would've looked like if this systemic behavior hadn't been in place. We don't have the buildings that were built by women or the food that was cooked by women or the comedy that was written and performed by women or the art that would've been made by women or the books that would've been written by women or the political narrative that would've been told by women or the candidates and politicians and political leadership that should've been female.

My sister's a housewife. She used to be an architect.

Great write-up. The author was no doubt a superstar to get a clerkship with Kozinski and then with SCOTUS Justices O’Connor and Kennedy. Ironically, given AK's directive, she quit law to write historical romance novels full-time.

As an aside, I have a cousin with a PhD in Eng. Lit. from Harvard who loves that Harlequin Romance type of stuff. She knows it is shit but instead of watching an hour of mindless tv each night, that is her thing.
