Object Lessons: Rantings of a Lone Pamphleteer
Published... sort ofOver Thanksgiving , I had some time to read the paper, which I hardly ever get to do. It was enjoyable, right up until I ran into the Business article Watch your language, ladies.
The article outlines how men purportedly perceive women's behavior and language in the workplace. The article's thesis is summed in one CEO's quote: "Men in the business world still want women to be prim and proper."
I was compeled to write my first letter to the editor. I vented at the paper's faceless, nameless staff and forgot all about it.
So, when USA Today called, I assumed it was a telemarketer. Instead, a young woman talking very fast asked if they could publish it.
If you read USA Today, take a look. It was printed today, under the title "A myth perpetuated."
