A Book from the Past

After today's Congressional hearing about contraceptive coverage in health insurance, which featured an all-male list of witnesses, I thought it was time to share this photo I took in an antiquarian bookstore while I was back home at New Year's:

Antiquarian book with title Woman: Her Condition, Prospects, &c

Some folks seem to think we're living in the same era when this book was published.

It was rather amusing, in a way, for the self-righteous bunch of guys to sit there representing the women of our country on a very gender-based issue. Amusing, because women will continue to handle those issues on their own as they have always done.
