You'd think that having women in higher positions, like secretary of state and CEOs of major companies, would bring is up in the world a bit. Sure we have some power, and rights, and "the vote"...but we stuttered somewhere.
I love reading Victorian novels, women were to be respected, valued in these novels not just for a pretty face, but a keen mind and good partnership skills. It might not be true in real Victorian era, but in my novels it is.
I know that women were less judged then by how they looked naked...because art did not include huge amounts of porn.
why am I on this tangent? I was looking for a classical statue face to oil paint today. and I am wondering where we stuttered as women in our path for equality. I know we want sexual freedom and choices, but isn't baring it all for men to jack off to just selling our soul to the same devil?
how'd we get from this
yeah, all naked, but the first ones depict real women, beauty, grace, fertility, patience
the last two, I'm not so sure....
