Tobes over at Hear Me Roar also enjoys pulling off the occasional feminist coup, and managed to do a little something to subvert the patriarchy last week when she was asked by her boss to retype 100 pages of text from old management pamphlets into a Word document:
If you can't imagine it being any worse.. jut wait. There were entire sections on, "What a partner's golf swing says about his business style." *head desk* It gets even better. All the references to secretaries-- female pronouns and all the mangers and sales people-- you guessed it-- male pronouns. Naturally I had to do SOMETHING.If you've pulled off any similar mini-revolutions recently, we want to hear about them. If not, here are some ideas of things to do this week.
So I switched all these references so now the women are out golfing and making business deals and the men are working the front desk -- it's my mini-revolution.
