The dog and pony show

Bush nominated a woman to replace a woman on the Supreme Court.
Congratulations to Diversity!

We have been led to believe that having more women in positions of power means women overall benefit. We have been led to believe that if a few lucky (privileged) women break the ceiling, the stairway to heaven will be easier to climb. If only it were that easy. It is a matter of consciousness. If you are not aware that structural inequalities exist to allow some to be pulled up by their pumps, you will be of no benefit to the masses of women who struggle for their daily existence. There will always be ambitious privileged women in positions of power, the jury is still out on how that helps the rest of us.
