Women tab in The Guardian

I think that the UK Guardian is a socially progressive, well-intentioned if not always well-researched paper. In any case, I appreciate its worldwide coverage and aspirations and regularly follow a few of their writers.

However, there is one thing that rankles with me, every single visit. Why, in 2016, is the “Women” tab subsumed under the “Life and Style” page? Other than diminishing, the positioning is also inaccurate: the Women articles can and tend to be rather serious and polemic, if not outright political. What is the point of nestling it among food, relationship advice and makeup news? Oh wait… I’ve heard this before…”aw you’re so cute when you’re angry! Now go get your face on, it’s time for dinner”.
