Do high heels empower or oppress women?
Some say elevated look leads to success at work; others say lower is better
On the Today Show, MSNBC
September 23, 2009
Dr. Helen Fisher, an anthropology professor at Rutgers University in New Jersey, is in the camp of those who think that sky-high heels are just too sexy for most workplaces.
“High heels thrust out the buttocks and arch the back into a natural mammalian courting — actually, copulatory — pose called ‘lordosis,’ ” Fisher said. “Rats do it, sheep do it ... lions do it, dogs do it. ... It is a naturally sexy posture that men immediately see as sexual readiness. [Heels] are a ‘come hither’ signal. ...
“When women wear high heels at work, they send sexual signals that should be avoided if they want to be taken seriously.”

Can Mark Sanford Save His Marriage? Probably Not
July 02, 2009
I couldn't help cringing yesterday when I heard a marriage therapist comment on Good Morning America about the state of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford's marriage. "I see this all the time," marriage therapist Terry Real said on the broadcast. "The big secret . . . 'I'm not in love with my wife.' Not being in love with your spouse is part of marriage. It doesn't mean you're in a bad marriage . . . It's perfectly normal not to be in love." http://health.usnews.com/blogs/on-women/2009/07/02/can-mark-sanford-save-his-marriage-probably-not-.html
