I’ve just read an interesting article about women in web design. And I’m stunned.
It’s been 22 years since my (female) manager was ‘demoted’ to non-manager following the birth of her child, because she needed to reduce her hours to 40/week. It’s been 33 years since my summer job at a state law enforcement agency—where I had to keep a desk between me and the division head. It’s been 34 years since a guy declared in class that he hated when girls used big words and that they should stay barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen. It’s been 38 years since Title IX was passed…
You’d think we would be past all this bullshit by now.
But, apparently, we’re not.
This drivel about what designers can learn from girls was posted today. :P
