The term ‘strength in depth’ (not one I’m fond of in any case), is used only as a positive in the men’s game, only as a negative in referring to the women’s game. There is a qualitative blindness that follows the women’s game that is quite shameful and, possibly, quite unconscious.
There's a lot of talk, constantly, about women; women in popular culture. Let's say, women who are currently popular in culture. I'm talking about Beyonce, Lena Dunham, Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Swift (to name a few).
At the end of the day, Tucker’s post was a big deal because it exposed (with concrete examples) the fact that when you don’t see people like you at the top of their game in your chosen profession, it can be disheartening and, almost certainly, discouraging. It also illustrates that the status quo are often running scared, not necessarily out of sheer malice, but perhaps for no other reason than that they simply don’t know how to (re)act.
