Wordless Wednesday for women … and men | July 15/20

Instead of just enjoying these by myself every once in awhile, as I’ve been doing, I thought I’d share. We can laugh (and we can cry) as we continue to work towards changing this dynamic.

    It’s so laughingly sad.
    Just last week, a director for our business unit suddenly disappeared from the ranks. Then 2 wks. later it was announced she retired. This is someone with over 15 years in senior management roles.
    Wonder what she did to annoy the top male dog.

    • Jane Fritz says:

      Wow. So sorry to hear this, Jean. I shouldn’t say this, but depending very much on the top dog, it may not have taken much! 😉 I was lucky and mostly had excellent ‘top dogs’ to work for and who mentored me. But … from time to time the stereotype with the fragile male ego would emerge!

      • Jean says:

        She didn’t get a proper ‘retirement’ goodbye from her gang…like a normal retirement. Even during covid, one can do all sorts of great stuff online..like what we did for our immediate manager. So something else negative happened to her. She was a refreshing change with lots of both career and life experience.

    Laughing because otherwise I’ll be crying. Sigh – so much to fix in the world….

  3. 😀 Love these! (At least all’s equal in the bedroom! 😉 )

  4. I think the interview one is my favorite. 🙂 – Marty

  5. Wonderfully illustrative of the blind spots a lot of men exhibit at times, thanks again Jane for your wit and wisdom.

    • Jane Fritz says:

      Thanks, Wayne. “Blind spot” is a reasonable way of describing this behaviour insofar as it’s so ingrained; way past time to change that!

        • Jane Fritz says:

          Parfait, Julien, merci. For readers who don’t speak French, this translates into English to: There is none more blind than he who will not see. Sadly, that is being shown to be true in many areas these days, including not only too many men not taking female colleagues seriously but also with the denial by so many of the seriousness of COVID.

  6. Wow, this is definitly very thought provoking. Love the way this is all illustrated by pictures, yet it is so powerful.
