Meeting Notes

Meeting Notes is a weekly feature. Here we will dish on tidbits, news, and important things we thinking Working Girls should know. So scroll down to hear what we think you should glean from this work week.
  • A former Vogue intern swiped a rare issue of the magazine and is now trying to sell it on Ebay. Why so rare? It boasts a masthead with famous author Lauren Weisberger's name listed as "assistant" to Anna Wintour. Yes, she wrote The Devil Wears Prada. It seems that interns at Vogue are pretty ballsy - stealing and writing tell-all memoirs wowza! [Fashionista]
  • A recent survey from Mumpoll.com revealed that 8 out of 10 women are waiting to have children when they are older because they lack the money. 9 out of 10 women polled said they would struggle financially if they had children and two thirds feared their careers wouldn't be the same if they had a child. [Daily Mail]
  • A female employee announced she will be filing a discrimination complaint against her employer Disneyland because she was sent home by her boss for wearing her hijab to work during Ramadan. [Jezebel]
