The Wikipedia entry on a highly estimable lady, Grace Hopper (1906-1992):
Grace Hopper was an American computer scientist and a Rear Admiral in the US Navy. In her later years she bore an uncanny resemblance to Albert Steptoe of the classic British sitcom Steptoe and Son, which isn’t relevant to this piece, so I won’t charge you extra for adding that.

It follows in the wake of all the stories we’ve posted of late about the advantaging of women, and disadvantaging of men, in the workplace, regardless of the negative impacts on men, organisational efficiency, corporate performance etc. The following short but very insightful – and at times amusing – article ‘Attaining Respect in a Man’s World’ has been brought to our attention.

One final thing. Be sure to click on the link at the end of the piece, ‘Related: what happens to companies…’. Another very insightful piece, well worth reading.
