That’s the headline that the Washington Post gave my review of Dee Dee Myers’s new book, Why Women Should Rule the World. Myers, as you may recall, was Bill Clinton’s first press secretary, and the first woman in the job.
I’m not sure where the wisdom lies–I found very little in the book–but there surely was pain in the reviewing of it. Books like this set feminism back a good decade.
Here’s my lead: “If women truly want to rule the world, they will stop writing books with titles like Why Women Should Rule the World.”
