One can only hope that your cover photo of a barefoot woman on a chaise with the headline: “Respect, Please! Jennifer Weiner ’91 is fighting for women’s novels” was intended to be disrespectful, degrading, anti-feminist, or maybe ironic. The inside picture of another barefoot woman author begs the question: Could we not also have them pregnant? If your self-awareness is so slight that this slipped by “by accident,” as my grandchildren might phrase it, get thee to some consciousness-raising! Really, would you have shown a barefoot “serious” male author on the cover? 

Respect, please, PAW editors.
