Double standards are nothing new. Women deal with them every day. Take the common truism that women who sleep around are sluts while men are studs. Why is it that men grow distinguished and sexily gray as they age while women just get saggy and haggard?

Isn’t it unfair that working moms are labeled “bad” for focusing on their careers while we shake our heads in disbelief when we hear about the occasional stay-at-home dad?In He's a Stud, She's a Slut, and 49 Other Double Standards Every Woman Should Know, Jessica Valenti, author of Full Frontal Feminism, calls out the double standards that affect every woman.

Rounding up because I would have liked to have more of the infromation cited.Extremely amusing, at times horrifiying, but always thoughtful ideas (most of which I agree are true) about double standards in today's (American) society.As a woman who has traveled, eaten out, and gone to movies by myself...
