My Fair Lady

The Movie My Fair Lady

I do remember the movie My Fair Lady – it goes back to 1964 when this film first made it to the screen.  Was there much discussion about it in those days about the words of Henry Higgins?   Though I do think we all saw the funny side of the words that were uttered by Professor Higgins.

I wonder what would happen if it appeared in a new movie in 2019? No doubt some women will hear it for the first time.

Today (September 15th, 09) issue of U on Sunday features man stories about women – I think to publicise breast cancer and fundraising for the cause.

There was a small piece from Rory Gibson, “you’ve got male” on page 3 reporting on some research that women are less likely to be resuscitated by bystanders than men who need resuscitation.   He comments that it might be the #metoo movement which is “killing women”.  Men may be afraid to help, because of the risk of being accused of sexual harassment or similar.

Really?  If men never sexually harassed, abused, assaulted, or raped women in the first place, it probably wouldn’t be an issue.

Oh, well, I could go on, but not here, and not today.

I’ll go back to reading Invisible Women, my book of the moment with so much data about the discrimination of women.  I have no doubt it will be a conversation that will continue for a few more generations to come.  What do you think?
