photoLawyers for Martha Stewart delivered more than a thousand documents to Capitol Hill, as investigators continue to investigate the insider-trading scandal that's dogged her all summer. Stewart herself may be called up to Capitol Hill. Congress and criminal investigations aren't her only problem. Now she's being accused of insider trading in stock of her own company.

What's up with Martha and what's behind the public's love/hate relationship with her? Does society look at women in power differently from men and is that fair?
