Need some new sunglasses?
A Chinese eyewear company has introduced a range of sunglasses named after Helen Keller. Keller is a national hero in China, for both her triumph over blindness and deafness and her socialist politics, and the company says its “Helen Keller” sunglasses are a tribute to Keller’s heroic spirit. Nevertheless, some have questioned the taste of naming glasses after Keller, especially in light of the firm’s slogan: “You see the world, the world sees you.”
