Women and Their Maids: A Photographic Levelling (July 2010)

What’s most interesting to me about this are the comments, which explore so many sociological topics, including: bias and assumptions in general, racism, fat-shame, being prejudiced vs. realistically playing the odds, classism, status, connotation vs. definition of words like ‘frumpy’ and ‘servant’, innate mental capacity vs. socioeconomic and educational opportunities in determining what one does for a living, women/men and work, and more.
