Patterns in Post-Feminist America
Part 1: At the family law court with Mom, waiting for her case to be brought up, we ended up watching several domestic violence/child custody cases come before the judge. None of the women were represented or accompanied by an attorney. Every man (who was there, anyway; several had skipped) had his attorney present. And the men were all better-dressed, looking at least nominally professional, sitting across from women in mostly nice jeans and blouses. There was a pretty striking - and remarkably consistent - visual contrast.
Part 2: I’ve generally worked in heavily female-dominated workplaces. But the few men that were there? Almost exclusively in supervisory or high-level management positions.
The plural of anecdote is not data, of course. But it’s interesting to note, isn’t it?
