More on Women and Blame

Katha Pollit’s got a new column up about the politics of blame. More specifically, the politics of blaming women. For everything. She picks up on Missouri’s decision to blame women for the perceived problem of undocumented immigration (which I wrote about here), and adds several more to the list. I think Pollit’s list makes it clear that blaming women for all kinds of ills of “modern” (and ancient) society has become trendy because of the political favor such a tactic can curry in the U.S. and abroad.
