Is there discrimination against women? Yes. There's no denying that the old boys' network is alive and well. But there's also discrimination against men.
We have been suckered into believing that, because there are more men at the top than women at the top, that this is a result of discrimination against women. That's been the misconception. It's all about trade-offs. You earn more money, you usually sacrifice something at home.
The only men who aren't in fear of women's reactions are usually men who aren't born or who are dead.
Is there discrimination against women? Yes, like the old boys' network. And sometimes discrimination against women becomes discrimination against men: in hazardous fields, women suffer fewer hazards.
