Newsweek has a much discussed article about the barriers that women still face in the workplace. (Thanks, Macaroni!)
The author writes that despite some obvious changes in the workplace, women are disillusioned. American women still lag behind other countries, including Cuba and Namibia, on rankings of financial and political success. Women (particularly women with children though the article didn't say that) lag behind men in terms of pay. "Female bylines at major magazines are still outnumbered by seven to
one; women are just 3 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs and less than a
quarter of law partners and politicians." Susan Douglas is quoted in the article and concurs that much work is to be done. (And much work has to be done by me. I have to do a review of her new book, Enlightened Sexism.)
Does sexism still exist in your workplace?
