A follow up to my earlier email to The Week magazine:
I hope a reply to my earlier email will be on its way shortly. In the meantime, I just observe that another week of the Wit & Wisdom column has passed, and once again it was not just dominated by men, it was overwhelmed by them. Five men, just the one woman – and one anonymous quote which, almost as if someone had decided to make a point, started off talking about a lawyer and then slipped into assuming a lawyer must be a ‘he’.
Are you really so short of interesting and amusing things that aren’t said by men or people who assume anyone with a professional qualification must be a man?
Best wishes etc.
