On Monday, Elinor Ostrom of the United States became the first woman to win the Economics Prize.
How sad is that? Not that she won but that, well into the 21st Century, we're still saying ''the first woman to ..."
And, to think we still have. ''the first woman president'' and ''the first woman vice-president'' of the US ahead of us -- although I would gladly pass on both as long as it keeps Sarah Palin from winning either office.
Anyway, last week, Romanian-born German author Herta Mueller won the Nobel Literature Prize, while Israel's Ada Yonath was one of three scientists recognised for chemistry.
Two other women, Australian-American Elizabeth Blackburn and Carol Greider of the United States, were both awarded the Nobel Medicine Prize.
Note that most women have won since we feminazis have taken over the world and forced our sisters into the workplace and the abortion abattoirs.
(That's a joke, kids.)
We're just crowding out deserving men from the prize race.
Oh, and by the way? While on the subject of herstory, I am pleased to note that ''The Famous Five,'' the women who fought to get women recognized as actual ''persons'' in Canada, were made honourary senators.
Posthumously, of course. Wouldn't want them getting too big for their bustles or anything.
You know what I like best about these stories?
They allow me to post photos of unBotoxed women who don't look like they've been put through the Photoshop of Horrors.
