No way are they going to give positive press to women like Jeri and other outsiders who don’t march in line with the rest of the “good girls.” Perhaps the a href=”http://www.wisdomquotes.com/002317.html””feminist” slogan/a “well-behaved women rarely make history” should be changed to “only well-behaved women make the cover of span style=”font-style:italic;”Vogue./span”
