I wish I could take credit for this particular observation, but credit goes to my Twitter bud Anna. Earlier this week, she tweeted this:
Google Image “CEO”. Now look me in the eyes and tell me we’ve reached gender equality.
And I felt compelled to accept her challenge. Here’s what you get:
Carol Bartz (former Yahoo CEO who has not behaved particularly well…) and CEO Barbie. This is what we get. Had google existed 20 years ago, this search panel would probably have looked about the same. Except Barbie would have been rocking some serious shoulder pads. In twenty years, who wants to put money on it looking much better?
Just for kicks, here’s page one of search results for “Senator”:
Kind of reminds me of that time we played with predictive google searches. Wasn’t that fun?

I’m branching out. No sex talk, media spin, advertising criticism, Hollywood gossip, gender wars or body love that you’ve come to expect. Today, it’s all about food. I’m guest-blogging at what, in my mind, is a baby Smitten Kitchen called The Nom Blog. Anna, someone I knew a long time ago and I hope to know again (now that she’s moving to Chicago) is the brains of the operation. She’s awesome and generous for loaning me her foodie platform.
I’ve never written a real recipe before, nor is food photography really my expertise. But every now and then, it’s nice to get out of my wheelhouse. So if you want to see me get my Rachael Ray on (or Ina Garten, if you prefer) go check out The Nom Blog.
