  • Yep I agree I started my career as a Commodities Stock Broker and City Club where all the wheeling and dealing went on was a men's only club. Women were finally admitted to the lunches but not the sports and spa area. It was absurd the men acted like we were gonna get our periods and defile the purity of their damn club.

  • There's a good ole boys club in many areas of life. It will never all go away. Sad, but true.
    But breaking this barrier is huge progress.
