The Lipstick LobbyList 5.24.10

(Left) No comment.

Yesterday was the 200th birthday of a fabulous Cantabrigian: Margaret Fuller.  "Fuller is now seen as America’s first female public intellectual. Fuller said women were constrained and diminished by a society that failed to see their true powers."

Lisa Belkin on “Judging Women”: “But it is still harder for mothers to reach the top. For men, having a family is an asset when pursuing a demanding career. For women, it is still a complication.”

Peter Beinart in the Daily Beast, “Put a Mom on the Court”:  "Our government is actually doing a pretty good job of providing role models for the 20 percent of American women who don’t want kids. Where it’s failing is in providing role models for the 80 percent that do."
