ozarque figure

Recommended link; article on young women and the workplace...

Yesterday, looking at some "glass ceiling" material, I came across this article -- "Young Women Face Culture Shock in First Jobs," by Hannah Seligson -- at http://womensenews.org/article.cfm/dyn/aid/2696/context/archive , and was very surprised by its account of the difficulties young women are having in "handling the subculture" in their workplaces. Most of the women in their 20s and 30s that I meet these days (both on and off the Net) are so confident and assertive that I'm rather taken aback by them.

I'd be interested in any comments you might have about this piece, and in whether you find it as surprising as I do.
