Why, oh why, is there such a disparity between the size of the pictures of the male winner of the SLO Marathon and the female winner? Did she run a race five times shorter? Is she five times smaller? What was the thinking (or lack thereof) when the page was set up? Did no one notice the lack of equity, or are we so accustomed to this type of inequity that we simply don’t see it any longer?
