double standard

A powerful woman can mean so many things. There are so many preconceptions about what a decent woman should do and how she should present herself. An openly sexual woman is shunned due to the standards in society, history, and religion. However, throughout history some of the most powerful men have flaunted their sexuality as virility and confidence (seen as attractive and powerful qualities). Ultimately, there is a double standard for women. She is expected to remain presentable, beautiful, and sexually appealing, but if she initiates the sexuality she is tossed around and called a slut.
