Anyone who says being a woman is easy is probably a man.
Which is why the meme-ification of Norman Rockwell’s 1959 painting, “The Jury,” is so poignant and hilarious. Because, well, if we can’t laugh at how ridiculous the world can be to women, we’d probably never get out of bed in the morning.
The painting, which depicts a woman being pressured by the 11 male members of the jury she’s on, was a social commentary. In 1959, women still weren’t allowed to be jurors in every state and many other states limited their participation.
These pushy male jurors don’t just resemble juror no. 3 or juror no. 7 from “Twelve Angry Men.” They resemble today’s state of affairs in an eerily close manner.
Especially, this guy:
Stand your ground, lady juror. We know it's been nearly 60 years, but you’re still a boss.
