Are they demanding legislation that will favor femal-owned over male-owned business? Do not the owners and employees of male-owned businesses have families as well? There is a claim of 'backroom" deals that shuts out women's businesses. As if the business man will cut a contract with a less-able, higher-priced vendor because it is owned by a male? Working the old "good ole boys" whine is an excuse for poor business skills and the lack of experience. More political correctness running amuck. I think that I will track the membership of this organization and be sure to NOT buy from this bunch for my business. Logic tells me that they must have serious problems with their companies if they need special legislation to keep them afloat.

Hi. My job is to manipulate legislation, water company deals, and local government. I am both shameless and money hungry. Hire me to to these things for you! I am why you hate lawyers.

I'm a male and would to join this organization. Or am I excluded? Maybe I should file suit so that I can be classified as a woman-owned business and be eligible for government grants and loans and a preference in government contracts. As a male I am now excluded from those benefits. And here I thought quality and and price were important. Somehow I think the "equal rights" movement didn't quite work out. This fails the reserve test! Carving out preferences for some will never acheive equality. If equality is really the goal? Maybe I should just join the Women in Government Organization, Junior League, LPGA or just workout at For Ladies Only!

Why weren't these women at home cooking dinner and cleaning the house? Enough is enough already.
