The West Australian
How hideous it is. Every day.
Get a load of this article from this morning's paper (click on it for a bigger image):
Anna Jacobs is a best-selling, prize-winning, highly acclaimed, popular and successful writer.
So why do the heading and the intro par belittle her by referring to her as a gran and a grandmother?
Why not woman, or author, or writer, or novelist?
How is her being a grandmother relevant in any way? Is it because it's so untterly unthinkable that once someone's old enough to be a grandparent, he or she is not only disqualified from achievement, but also totally incapable?
The fact the writer of this piece, and/or the sub-editor, have no apparent knowledge of Jane Austen says everything.
