Reminds me of a quote from a player in the North American women's gridiron football league, which puts their players in rather revealing and suggestive uniforms: "I don't care what they put us in, I'm just grateful for the opportunity to play." It's a step, that's better than nothing, and sort of in the right direction.
True. They have to deal with the attitudes of their time, and try not to be too shocking, or else their message would instantly get dismissed.
It's a problem as old as Shakespeare when he wrote his characters Shylock and Othello.
