Sexism and the Press
If you are a woman competing in a man's world you should have to pass all the tests both physical, mental and emotional that a man is required to do in any job that has tests of ability, strength and emotion that any man would in the job he or she is appying for.
The whole point of feminism is that a woman can full fill those attributes of any job that any man can do.
So I find it really embarrassing that Sarah Palin is held to a different standard than if she were a male candidate for VP.
Tough press scrutiny on issues like foreign policy, economics and the role any one let alone a woman or man would play if taking over as the POTUS. If Ms. Palin cannot meet the press head on with answers to these questions at this moment in time we are left to wonder if she actually has any answers to the comfort of the Amerian people.
