A must watch. This video by the Women’s Media Center, “Sexism Sells—But We’re Not Buying It,” shows several real-life examples of prominent figures in the news making disgusting, extreme sexist remarks, specifically about the presence of (in reality, the lack thereof) women in politics. Obsessive, dehumanizing analysis of women’s appearances? Equating women in politics to having “nagging voices” that remind men of their wives? Fears of castration? It’s all here!
