Meeting Notes

Meeting Notes is a weekly feature. Here we will dish on tidbits, news, and important things we think Working Girls should know. So scroll down to hear what we think you should glean from this work week.

  • In a recent Law.com article, Patricia Gillette cites the character of Dorothy from "The Wizard of Oz" as a female leader - someone who formulated a plan and overcame obstacles, but in the end she didn't ask for anything for herself. She goes on to argue that some say this represents the stereotypical female leader: team builder, encourages collaboration, and takes no credit or recognition for her hard work. Gillette argues that this lack of self-promotion is detriment to women especially in law firms.

  • A recent study conducted by Pamela Tolbert showed that men who make more money than their wives report significantly higher career satisifaction thatn men who earn about the same as their spouses. To which I can only say...still?

  • Forever 21 is launching a home and beauty line which is said to roll out in stores later this year. The cheap poor Working Girl in me is screaming yes, but my hopes is it won't be Claire's for grown-ups. Bring me Antrhopologie type stuff for cheap please!

  • Now this is the most adorable thing I have ever seen and makes me want an inter-office romance! (Kinda).

It is regrettable that men still cling to their prehistoric views about women (working or otherwise.) Perhaps we should drag them out onto the streets and beat it out of them. Wait just a second! Whose side am I on?
[Laughter]

The situation is improving(?) though. Soon, men will be submissive slaves to powerful women.

Cheers!
