Angie's Desk - Anthology Calls

Angie has posted her January listing of paying anthology markets.  Thanks, Angie!

The Future is Female by Alexandria Lightman

Sometimes I wonder what women are thinking when they write something like this.  In six sentences she dismissed all the hard work of the women who achieved so much as they worked either alone or side by side with the men.  The men didn't do it alone and to say they did is to say that women didn't matter.  Shame on you.

And yes, I usually stay out of the political correctness battles but this one really pissed me off.  While women aren't given the credit they deserve it doesn't mean they were sitting on the sidelines wringing their hands while the men dashed about on their white horses saving the damsels in distress and making the world safe for femininity.  Finished with my rant now :)
