Glass ceilings

September 19, 2013

Every age must think that its predecessors were living a sheltered existence. That they lived in a world where certain truths seemed to be self-evident. And yet they lived with blind spots. Ignorance, prejudices, assumptions clouded their judgment. We are no different. But what are our blind spots?

Watching Mad Men, I sometimes wonder if that show isn’t all about women. Women living in a man’s world. Molding themselves to fit in. Hitting that glass ceiling and thinking it is reality. Expecting men to fulfill their lives.
