Women and Power
di Michael Savage
‘Women and Power’ at the British Museum is the worst exhibition I’ve ever seen. Shallow, didactic, partisan. I passionately hate the Daily Mail, but it’s the most popular newspaper in the UK. Elizabeth Day’s text shames its readers directly, saying it’s in a line from the Malleus Maleficarum and literal witch hunting. That’s disgusting. You might say she’s ‘othering’ millions of British Museum visitors and patrons. The objects on display are random; it’s all about the wall text. Yuck!
