Oh my. Love the graphic - "everyone" wants one!

This op-ed piece is just unbelievable.

(H/T to Amy Suskind at The New Agenda here:

Irish Times opinion piece:

"Working women almost certainly caused the credit crunch"

"Whether working women actually caused the credit crunch is now a moot point. The point is that removing women from the workforce would mitigate its effects.

Consider the issue of unemployment. There were 221,301 men on the live register last month and just under one million women in work.

Surely at least half these women have a partner who is earning? Surely at least half would be happier at home? One half of one half is a quarter and one quarter of a million is roughly 221,301. I think we can all see where this argument is going."

NOTE FROM HEIDI LI: I have read this article, and cannot tell if it is supposed to be satire. In my opinion even if it is it is misogynistic and I have put it in the misogyny museum at 51 Percent: http://www.fifty-one-percent.org/index.php/misogyny-museum/36-general-collection/123-irish-times-misogynistic-column

I belong to the AAUW and received an email alert about an International Women's Day event on March 5 at theatres across the US. Perhaps people are interested.

Good point. "Humor" doesn't get them off the hook. Besides "humor" is often just the cover they run to when called out ...but the under lying primases are not funny and are not meant to be.
