Nine white males on the New Albany Common Council … and this excellent commentary by the editor of LEO. I usually read Erika Rucker’s column, but little else. Maybe it’s time to dig a little deeper.
EDITOR’S NOTE: No post-gender society, by Keith Stone (LEO)
Watching the Olympics, you cannot help but be mesmerized by the world-class female athletes who are killing it in their events and showing the world how to take absolutely no shit. Like 19-year-old Lilly King, who matched her outrage over Russian doping with an outrageously-fast, winning swim. Or Simone Biles, who may be the best female gymnast ever and whose performances in Rio drew cheers from teammates and competitors alike. And then there is Simone Manuel, the first African-American woman to win an individual gold medal in swimming.
Maybe their domination presages what could be America’s Year of The Woman. After all, in less than 100 days we choose between Cheeto-wrought, worldwide mayhem and electing the first female president …
… Will we become gender-blind? … Not.
