What SHE said - we women have a few demands.

From Lisa Fabrizio at The American Spectator:

I'm angry at the way Hollywood portrays women, with a condescending and hypocritical attitude that at once praises us -- particularly our black sisters -- as innately all knowing and all powerful, while at the same time insisting that we must be drop-dead gorgeous; equally able to avenge ourselves against our male oppressors while balancing on spiked heels. Yes, we must be depicted as the fantasies of both man-hating feminists and 13-year-old boys.
Most of all, I'm angry at the majority of my fellow women who refuse to break out of their politically correct chains and stand up for themselves by refusing to be put into the molds their liberal sisters have so malevolently formed for them; allowing groups like NOW and NARAL to speak for them as representative of all women. It's time for this silent sorority to loudly proclaim that we actually want to be wives and mothers and are proud of it; that we are enjoy being career women who have no problem coexisting with, and even liking our male co-workers, rather than seeing them as "the enemy."

The whole piece is worth your time.
