Yet Another Small Drawing-Flipping Exercise

A columnist described how the Labour leader John Prescott, who had been caught having an affaire, had used his ‘power’ to conquer this ‘young powerless woman’. The nature of the power used is not, however, specified; I was not aware that Ministers of the Crown had statutory authority over the bodies of nubile females. But we are not meant to ask ourselves this question, much less to see a woman using her youthful sexuality to conquer this ‘older, unattractive man’ and thereby to get on in the world. This is a good training exercise in flipping the drawing from male-agent to female-agent.
