Women have for centuries tried the softsell approach. It was not thie
soft sell that got us the vote nor did it get us even the terminology pay
equity. Of course the hope is that attitudes will change but it needs to
be kick started. Being the only woman in my department (for the last 23

some 'attacks', many understood the issues or at least accepted them.
Educating the whole next generation maybe a positive approach to change!
