As usual will the male dominated corporate sector again act against the women in their cost cutting measurs and keep comparatively less qualified/experienced and retrench the higher qualified/experienced women?
WHY DO WOMEN NOT TAKE DIRECT ACTION TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AS WHEN THEY HAVE POWER VIA THEIR VOTES AS IN THE CASE OF POLITICS-CORPORATE-OTHER SECTORS THEY STILL VOTE FOR MEN TO POWER AND POSITIONS INSTEAD OF OTHER WOMEN AND AGAIN WHY DON’T WOMEN STAND FOR ELECTIONS FOR POSITIONS OF POWER?
[Women’s greatest enemy may be their own kind in their quest to get their rights]
