    As I read the article, printed in Israel's most stout of Left-Wing leaning (or falling) publications, I was puzzled. I found it curious how this honorable news service wrote a decidedly chauvanist article about a female Israeli Scientist. What is going on here. I have been trained to think and believe that the Left supports Feminism as well as feminism. That they disagree with the usual treatment of women in the capitalist press, that they would seek out her mind rather than her looks. But Woe Be Me, it is the same old fluff, a "Bad Hair" story. When is it going to stop, and when are many women out there, going to stop being politcal Feminists and start acting like real feminists. As for the press, it is ingrained, and sadly it is expected to read a story about a female scientist and inevitably attack the subject of hair and makeup. Puzzling indeed, but then again the Left rarely fulfils its creed, for the creed is but Veneer, skin & nail polish deep.
