Sweet, sweet activism

Do you love feminism, ice cream, and lace jabots? Here is the ice cream for you! UC Berkeley professor and writer Tania Lombrozo suggested "Ruth Bader Ginger" in response to "10 delicious solutions to Ben & Jerry's women problem" with flavor suggestions honoring famous women.


Apparently, out of twenty person-named flavors in B & J's history, only two have been named for women. Lombrozo writes:

My post was really a discussion of when — and why — female underrepresentation can so easily go unnoticed, requiring a stunt like McCall's for most of us to pay attention.

Suggestions for other flavors named after women? And what do you think of "ice cream activism" - does it draw needed attention to underrepresentation or is it too subtle a jab?
