The Creation Story of Women in VC
Bethany Crystal
34019

It starts earlier than this now, Bethany, even in the story books available to my toddler daughter. In those stories, the caregivers are women, the adventurers are men. Even in “Vegetables In Underwear”, there are disproportionately more “boys pants” (as the author defines it), than “girls pants”. One wonderful exception is “The Day Louis Got Eaten”, which prominently features Sarah, a resourceful inventor who rescues her gobbled-up brother.
