She Wolves

She-Wolves, BBC4, 21st March 2012.

Delighted to see Helen Castor on TV.  She’s a very good historian.  And her ‘She-wolves’ are a good topic.  She summed up very well, that power is still overwhelmingly masculine, and that even now women can’t just rule.

It’s a shame that she looked so conventionally feminine, though.  Prettily cut, dyed hair; a lot of make up; a pink scarf.

So long as there is such a difference in attire, there will be a difference in attitudes to equality and women’s place in society.
