I think you sell women short.Women allow themselves to be knocked down by buying into the crap thats thrown at them through mass media.There are plenty of powerful women who are in historyy books and as time passes there will be more great strides by women.Here are some women that have some jobs and power that I would love to have.I also don't think they would have been able to accomplish these things if they had a self negative image of what women are capable of.Women are great some of the most influential people have been women.Men just don't want to admit it or talk about it.
