helpless women

i really liked this article by naomi wolf that ran in The Washington Post this weekend, about our current obsession with the travails of paris (jail), lindsay (drugs, rehab), britney (rehab), nicole (drugs, eating disorder), etc. her thesis is that as opportunities for women expand, we simultaneously retreat from the intimidating possibilities of women's strength by focusing on images of young, fragile women falling apart.

this helps explain why i, for one, am seriously considering a subscription to US Weekly.
