Tina Fey on "The Way Women are Perceived as Leaders"

In the article, “Tina on Top” found in the May 2008 issue of Marie Claire magazine, Amy Poehler asks Tina Fey to tell readers a little bit about a play she wrote while in Chicago in the early ‘90’s about Catherine the Great.

Yes. yes. I used to take playwriting classes, and I wrote a one-act play – I can’t remember the name of it, but it was really about the way women are perceived as leaders. In the play, Catherine the Great would say things like, "You know, John F. Kennedy had extramarital affairs and no one says anything. But I bang one horse and now I'm a horse-banger for all eternity? That's it? That's what I am? I think Hillary Clinton's got to relate to that.

Enough said.
