On the other hand, who can forget George Howland’s stirring tribute to Seattle’s “power lesbians,” in which he so movingly observed that just as “Seattle is famous for walking the talk when it comes to racial diversity and elected officials… No less striking is our region’s shattering of glass ceilings when it comes to lesbians.”

With such eloquent advocates at the Weekly, it’s no wonder that it’s the first place Seattle women turn for advice on how to achieve a more diverse, nurturing society that puts women in their place… um, of power.
