Goldstein's "Secretary" exhibition brings out critic's "inner feminista"

Camille LeFevre writes in mnartsts.org about how the Goldstein Museum of Design's current exhibit, "How Secretaries Changed the 20th Century Office: Design, Image, and Culture," brought out her "inner feminista."

The arts journalist notes she was "stopped cold" by a magazine spread that proclaimed, "The executive who finds a well-trained female can count himself lucky indeed." LeFevre continues, "The sentiment's forthright sexism (executive = man; well-trained female = woman? Or monkey?) was not only disturbing, it was bone-chilling."
