well thank you for that. I apologize again for leaping all over you. I thought perhaps you found them sexist....
She is growing on me...I don't completely dislike her anymore. She does try to empower women and young girls in a positive way, especially those that are vulnerable. That is important.

Thank you—it really wasn’t me. As far as I recall, the last time I had any “quarrel” with you was about Meghan Markle, whom I like and you don’t, but that was just a discussion, in words, not something I’d ever try to report!

Well someone is doing it.....and it's getting tiresome. If you say you don't then I have no course but to apologize and believe what you're telling me.

I’m not sure how you “know” I report your puzzles, since I don’t.

I’m also not sure what you mean by “making trouble again”, as if I’d just posted this, when this puzzle is about to turn two years old........

You’re the one who “truly cannot help yourself” if you have to search for an old puzzle to troll someone on......

Oh, right--I forgot that women can only be teachers (and maybe secretaries and nurses), unlike men. There aren't any women doctors, lawyers, scientists, mayors/governors/senators/representatives, police officers, firefighters, professors, architects, business owners, accountants, and so on......

what do you think would happen to this economy if all men just didn't show up you would see a real mess then wouldn't just be a bunch of children missing out on a school day

Thanks, Ardy! I hope it has really changed, and not just become an unwritten practice that employers do their best to keep secret by prohibiting their employees from discussing their salaries amongst themselves....

Thanks, Sue. When I first started working there were four levels on the pay scale for the same job. Paid the most were married men, then single men, then single women and finally married women. It has changed since then !!!!!

"As many American women prepared to draw attention to their role in the workplace, a Wall Street firm on Tuesday put up a statue of a girl in front of Lower Manhattan's well-known bronze charging bull, as if to fearlessly stare it down.

Placing the diminutive, grade school-aged girl in front of the massive bull on the eve of International Women's Day was a way of calling attention to the lack of gender diversity on corporate boards and the pay gap of women working in financial services, a spokeswoman for State Street Global Advisors said.

"A lot of people talk about gender diversity, but we really felt we had to take it to a broader level," said Anne McNally, whose firm is an investment management subsidiary of State Street Corp.

In conjunction with International Women's Day on Wednesday, many American women are planning to stay home from work, which has led some schools to cancel classes.

Organizers asked women who cannot afford to miss a day of work to limit their shopping to female-owned businesses or to wear red.

Although women have made some headway against the glass ceiling, State Street said one out of four of the companies that make up the Russell 3000 Index still have no female representation on their boards.

"Today, we are calling on companies to take concrete steps to increase gender diversity on their boards, and have issued clear guidance to help them begin to take action," State Street Global Advisors CEO Ron O'Hanley said in a statement.

Much the same as the charging bull, the little bronze girl by artist Kristen Visbal was put up in the wee hours of the morning as "guerilla art," McNally said. But, unlike the bull, the firm discussed it with the city beforehand so that it could remain at least temporarily.

"We're actively pursuing that it stays for a month," she said. "If the city decides that it should stay in perpetuity, we're absolutely on board with that."

The bull, sculpted by Italian-born artist Arturo Di Modica, was initially taken down after he quietly placed it in front of the New York Stock Exchange in December 1989. But it was later given a
permanent home, about a five-minute walk away on Broadway, in response to public support."
