This is what I’m getting at:
I’ve written about this kind of thing before, but don’t have time right now to go back and find you links, but basically, here’s my beef:
Women are in the Life & Style section.
Men are in the Executive Style section.
We’ve known for a long time that “Life & Style” is really just another way of saying “Trivial stuff the WIMMINZ like” for many newspapers and magazines. Likewise, it’s not exactly new for the “Executive Style” category to be coded “IMPORTANT STUFF FOR MASCULINE MACHO MEN WHO LOVE BLACK COS THAT’S MANLY AND COLOURS ARE GIRLY” (please excuse the caps, but I feel like it’s being shouted at me whenever I see that section).
Because, of course, all executives are men. Of course. /sarcasm
Seriously, SMH. Surely you can do better than this?
(This is apart from the likely problems with the articles themselves, which I admit to not having read. Have at ’em in comments!)
