Interesting Headlines this Week on Women, Wages and the 'Glass Ceiling'

There are two interesting news items that caught my attention this week.

Both are are pertintent to a blog for women in business and may inspire some interesting discussion!

Women's Purse at Wimbledon Now Equals Men's

I never realized that this was an issue in Tennis - but now I do! 

The topic brings me  back to the discussion on Women and Wages that Evelyn Murphy had with us during a visit to Sun's Burlington, MA campus over a year ago. 

I like what Serena Williams  had to say about this news at Wimbledon: "It's a step in the right direction, I mean, for just not only tennis, but just for women's sports and just for women all." 

Here's the other headline.  This one surprised me!

SC Man Could Be First Male PTA President

I was interested in what the commentary would be in the article.   It was very positive about the role that fathers play in their childrens' education.

Susan Bailey of Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College said the election of a man to the PTA's top post is "exactly the kind of thing we would hope would happen more often." 

I think that this is great for an organization that was founded as The National Congress of Mothers 110 years ago. 

What do you think????
