First, this blog post from Perez Hilton about Judge Judge who is going to make $45 million dollars next year. Hilton can't help add that this is incredible for a woman in her late sixties. Yeah, that comment pissed me off, but it is sort of true. Hollywood throws its women out after their thirtieth birthday.
Then I've got this article about a 70-year old woman in remote village in Northern India who is from a community that used to practice polyandry. She was married at age 14 to a 12-year old boy and promised to his younger brother. It's a very poor part of the world; the lines on her face tell a story of toil and hardship. But the article also says that in her society, women ruled the family.
Is a polyandrous society better for women than a polygamous society? Megan wonders what happened to the leftover girls.
I'm struggling to find a connection between these two very different women and come up with a snappy conclusion. Perhaps there is none.
