I understand that this article is limited only to American women. Yet, no discussion of women's progress toward equality can be complete without some mention of the plight of women in the Muslim world. If The Nation is really concerned about women, there really should be a no-holds-barred analysis of the situation of women in the Muslim world, including the reasons for the suffering of women there.

I liked Katha Pollitt's recap of 2000-2009, but she left out Lily Ledbetter and neglected to praise passage of the federal hate crimes legislation, which includes protections for lesbians and transgender women.

I would also say that Nancy Pelosi is now the most powerful Speaker in history. Quite a feat.

I admire Katha Pollitt, but this column illustrates what is wrong with the feminist view of reality in America. I care more about the nation's children than the number of physics professors.

See "Join the Revolution for a Family-Friendly America," on my Redstocking Grandma blog at Open Salon.
