Women Abused in Pictures, and Out of Pictures

The new Israeli cabinet, and without its female members for ultra-orthodox newspapers

The new Israeli cabinet, and without its two female members.

The abuse of women: to be erased from a photo of the new Israeli cabinet in ultra-orthodox newspapers, flogged in Pakistan, and kept under virtual house arrest by their husbands in Afghanistan. (See the New York Times piece on it all.) The irony of it while Carla Bruni and Michelle Obama are simultaneously vying for the public’s affection in Europe.

    In the history of Photoshop that will be written one day, I am certain that we will find a large majority of its uses directed towards women. And we will ask whether there isn’t something misogynistic about this particular software????
