More ‘Feminist Fury’ About Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama is continuing to take heat for reducing her hours as a hospital executive (to 20 hours/week), in order to help her husband Barack run for president. "Damn it all, Michelle Obama has quit her $215,000 dream job and demoted herself to queen," wrote Debra Dickerson in Salon. ". . . She’s traded in her solid gold resume, high-octane talent . . . to be a professional wife and hostess." Dickerson said she’s in a "feminist fury" over the fact that Obama, mother of two young children, was pressured to "sacrifice herself at the altar of her husband’s ambition." (May 2007)
