Tonight marks the debut of Courtney Cox's much-hyped TV comedy "Cougar Town" in which she plays a divorced older woman on the prowl for a younger man. We spoke to Rebecca Traister, a senior writer at Salon.com, and Linda Franklin, the Toronto-born founder of the online community TheRealCougarWoman.com, about whether there's anything empowering or transgressive about the cougar, in name or image. What do you think? Is this nickname or trend (at least) a step forward for women? Is it possible to reclaim the "cougar" as an image of empowerment?
