What year is it, again?

Did you know that politicians who are mothers of young children face more scrutiny and public censure for being politicians than politicians who are fathers of young children? It's true! And apparently still worth the front page of the WaPo. The physical paper is in the lunchroom; it's one of four above-the-fold headlines, dead center and with the big color picture to go with it.

While I'm all for people figuring out why they may hold that particular double-standard, wasn't this little revelation news about ten or so years ago? It seems a little strange for the front page "news."
