Virginia Postrel At Bloomberg: ‘Iron Lady Falls To The Anna Quindlen Doctrine’

Full piece here.

It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble.  It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so

‘These supposedly feminist filmmakers could have portrayed Thatcher as an ambitious woman who had nothing to feel guilty about. Instead they chose to inject guilt where it did not belong. They obscured Thatcher’s public accomplishments in a fog of private angst. The portrait of dementia isn’t the problem. The way the film uses old age to punish a lifetime of accomplishment is.’

Still looking for common cause with civil libertarian feminists, or anyone who highlights the fallacies of equity feminists and the oft misuse of statistics.  Economic scarcity, nature, human nature and world events will catch up with the movement.

What you choose to highlight and value in your life, is up to you.

  1. I don’t always agree with Virginia Postrel but I certainly agree with her review of ‘The Iron Lady’. Your statement that “What you choose to highlight and value in your life, is up to you” sums it up.
