I'm sorry but you are being too logical. Prepare for these haters to start calling you a l e s bian.
Nonsense. I just happen to disagree. I've worked in corporate America for over 30 years. I remember when it was an all-boy institution, especially in high technology. But that began to change 25 years ago. This is such an old argument I can't believe college girls are still writing papers about it.

I'm in middle management. My current boss is a man. I'll bet he's the only man I've worked for in the past 10 years, and that includes two women who were the presidents of the companies I worked for. This is a non-issue. That's all I'm saying.

I hear ya, I just think the article was a little more balanced than the opinion posts that followed (that's not unusual)

As the article states, 65 of the 100 companies have one or more women at a director level, obviously that's an acheivement...
