Margo Epprecht explains, quoting a woman who she admired in her first job:
“The business has changed,”… “It is not as intellectually challenging as it used to be. It’s more like cage fighting. Long-term investment today means a month; mathematicians convince themselves they can quantify risk in their arcane products that no one can understand; and fee structures are out of line with investor returns. No wonder people are cynical about Wall Street.”
Jill Filipovic, writing in the Guardian, plays the feminist & wonders why should women change their names after marriage. She recommends that men change theirs, or that the kids keep the women’s last name instead.
Your name is your identity. The reasons women give for changing their names after marrying don’t make much sense
Be prepared for a rather long read if you tackle the comments at the end of that article.
Maybe because they have more sense than men?
