I saw two movies this weekend: a documentary on the life and work of Maria Callas called Maria by Callas and Renee Zellweger’s amazing performance as Judy Garland in the movie Judy. (After doing a little research I was amazed to learn that both women were often called “ugly duckling”, Maria by her mother and Judy by Louis B. Mayer, head of her movie studio MGM.) Both movies were about strong women. Tough women. But then, Ladies, most of us are strong.
“The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world,” I heard when I was young, and I believed it. Most of us believe it. Even men believe it and, although it’s difficult for most men to acknowledge it, occasionally one of them does. And, when that happens, Ladies, you’ll know you’ve found your equal.
