For the third time in four weeks I told my daughter to put down her books and crayons and watch television.
The first time was Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s speech about misogyny. ‘That’s what a strong woman looks like, darling’ I told her. Next came Obama’s reelection acceptance speech. ‘The good guy won, sweetheart.’ And then yesterday I sat her down in front of a video of Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Sesame Street.
