What an incredible achievement! Against the backdrop of some of the anti-woman rhetoric of the campaign trail, two women are making history. This is a moment to be celebrated and cheered (albeit not completely).
Everyone seems to have his or her own, often steadfast, belief about how a woman's body should function -- a checklist we must complete in order to qualify as "perfect" or "useful" or "feminine."
