HI Jamie, I do believe you are right. Even with some of the advances in most areas women are still treated as lesser than men. I am fortunate in that where I work there are many female managers. My gut feeling is that there is a very large lesbian population in Oregon and at least from what I know there are a number of lesbian women in management positions. IN a way they look out for their own. What part of Michigan are you from. I grew up in Royal Oak and live for about 20 years in the Ypsilanti Ann Arbor area.

I find the work world to be a tougher place for women than it is for men, but maybe people who are blind have been discriminated against equally (gender not making any difference)? Here in Michigan, you know, we just struck down affirmative action in many areas including public universities. I can only think that this law passed because people did not understand the ballot proposal, and thought that by voting yes they were voting to KEEP affirmative action, when in reality they were voting to do away with it if they voted yes. It will be interesting to see the repercussions from that one, when they hit.
