It is also the birthday of numerous notable American women who used their gifts and careers to entertain, enlighten, and transform. Let’s start with two great film actresses, Theda Bara and Clara Bow. The characters they played wouldn’t have had to worry about a certain ESPN commentator’s assertion that women provoke their abusers verbally — they starred in silent…
