Last night, on Gossip Girl, Dan was waiting wistfully for Serena to appear, and passed the time by reading... Rebecca Traister's Big Girls Don't Cry: The Election That Changed Everything For American Women. Huh?
The fact that the camera lingered for so long and so close on the cover, making sure to show Dan's earnest and thoughtful expression as he considered cross-generational tension in the women's movement, means this was surely no accident. (Was that an eyeroll as he put it away?) But why? Was it supposed to be Serena's book, given that he was in her room, or was Dan's? Either scenario is entirely out of character. So which stealth feminist got it on the air?
