Furore over Buffy in California museum. A report on efforts made by Gov. Schwarzenegger's wife to have the state's history museum turned into a celebration of women. This has caused much controversy amongst the museum board who do not like the idea of role models such as Buffy being included.
Unfortunately this can only be read for free by UK posters, overseas readers have to subscribe.
But here's some relevant quotes:
"Shriver is said to have been frustrated that she lacked the space to include other role models nominated by young visitors, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, heroine of the eponymous television series."
"One board member said: “We have to save the museum but what has it come to (when) serious historical curators have to seek protection from Buffy the Vampire Slayer?”"
