There are not enough statues to women swimmers - who knew?

SHARE
The Guardian has alerted readers today to another important problem: the lack of statues to women swimmers.

We'll miss this sort of useful information when the paper goes bankrupt.

As the paper says,

With the exception of mermaids – an excuse to put a bronze topless women in public – there are not enough tributes to inspirational women in the world of swimming …
Note the feminist critique of statues of mermaids. You might think that mermaid statues are unobjectionable but, in fact, that would be naive. It's all about patriarchal oppression.
