Sexism on National Public Radio

Feminist Law Professors has a post which clearly illustrates the kind of chronic media sexism that the majority of people do not notice because (a) they do not have a clue what sexism is, (b) they are so accustomed to seeing sexist phrases and designations that they believe them to be acceptable, and (c) they are interested in "important" issues.

But the fact that the woman in question is identified only in terms of her having born a child or children who bore a child or children is as sexist as the day is long. The same writer would not have described a grenade-finding man as "a grandfather in Italy." Because women exist to bear children and cook potatoes, and whatever else we do is not that important, especially if we are older--even to NPR.

I can't take NPR anymore. Didn't they used to be a liberal radio station? I swear I can remember that.
