Still looking for just 'management'.

Where's that trial? Oh, too small a payday for the attorneys. How about one step at a time?The suit began nearly 10 years ago when it was originally filed on behalf of employee Betty Dukes and five of her co-workers. The women claimed they had been passed over for promotions and paid less than male employees.
Thank you, Quazi!

Ok. WalMart is at 33%, national average in 2007 (last year data was available) was 40%. They need to catch up som, certainly. But I'd be willing to bet there are other huge corporations with a worse number. Where are those lawsuits?A new government report found that women have made few inroads into management positions over the past decade and still face a persistent pay gap with their male counterparts. The findings, released today by the Government Accountability Office, and reported in the New York Times, showed that in 2007, the latest data available, women accounted for about 40% of managers in the U.S. work force. That number is up just slightly from 2000, when women held 39% of management positions

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Edward's Court continues to side with corporations. No shocker here.
God Has Boobs. It's in the Bible.
I'm still scratching my head over Justice Scalia's commentary on discrimination as "required" or "prohibited" under the Constitution. I know the 15th and 19th Amendments are about voting rights, but my goodness!
Justice Scalia in his deciding opinion:
Rephrased, the Constitution does not prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex.Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex. The only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesn't. Nobody ever thought that that's what it meant. Nobody ever voted for that.
There's your Constitutional basis for non-discrimination against the sexes right there!!The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
