"The day will come when man will recognize woman as his peer, not only at the fireside, but in councils of the nation. Then, and not until then, will there be the perfect comradeship, the ideal union between the sexes that shall result in the highest development of the race." - Susan B. Anthony

Admin There are the literal groups of good old boys which are made up of men who think only men can do and be anything. There is also the cliques that act like a good old boys club. We are always going to have both. Sometimes a person can break into them and sometimes they never will. One of the things that a woman has to do to break into a group is pick her battles. If she pushes into every little thing and gets on a high horse, she is known as a "bitch". There is a fine line between bitch and assertive woman. It helps if the woman lets unimportant things and stupid things go and fight for the important stuff. At home, hopefully she has learned about her partner and can lead because he respects her. Everyone earns respect. Yelling and bullying won't get anyone true respect.

Only 10% of all top jobs go to women

Ann That number is more like 15% according to newsweek, and it is declining.

Guest That number seems low. I would estimate it's about 25% where I work and female leaders are accepted. I expect the leadership positions will be increasingly held by women.

Ann At my place of work ~ 60% of the top positions are held by women. I can't divulge the company, but suffice it to say it is consistently 10 of the Fortune 100. From the outside one would assume no better example of the old boys network. Not saying it isn't there, just saying from my view the needle is moving in the right direction. The downside is that there seems to be no difference in terms of leadership or ethics despite the gender balance. It seems people are people after all.

It is amazing to see how many women are breaking into the good ol boy network. It is being oortrayed more and more in movies and television. But it is also become a reality that you see on a local as well as national stage.

Reuters.com has an item dated Sep 9 headlined: Does a changing economy mean the "End of Men"? I'm not allowed to post the link but perhaps someone with Admin privileges would like to do so. It includes these quotes: A group of girlfriends there are aiming for six-figure salaries; one envisions a husband who greets her after work "with a freshly baked cookie." And: "I think we have a cultural block about men doing more in domestic roles," Rosin said. "Our thinking about men and the way men behave has to change a lot before we can push through this last barrier," she said. Apologies if I posted in the wrong thread on this forum, it seemed the most appropriate one I could find. Thanks.

Julia Gillard, Prime Minister of Australia, gave a great example of female leadership in a debate in parliament about misogyny on 8 Oct. You can google for media reports and video clips.
