Quote of the Day

"Basically, the argument is that these two properties -- hostile sexism and benevolent sexism -- work together to maintain inequality," said lead author Jin Goh, a graduate student at Northeastern University.  Most people think of sexist men as being dominant aggressors who believe that women should be put down in society.  But other men believe that women should be treated with kindness and love, but still don't see them as being capable of achieving the same things as men.

-- Rachel Feltman, "Sexism often comes with a smile, study finds"
