Working Girl

I was watching WORKING GIRL tonight, the eighties movie with Melanie Griffith (before the lips) and Harrison Ford (before the earring), and it made me very thankful for all of those women out there who busted there butts over the years to break out of the roles they were told they were supposed to have and instead took the ones they wanted. I don't take it for granted that I can walk into a room full of business men and be taken seriously, and I'm happy to say I've never once been asked to fetch them a cup of coffee, or worse. I know there's still discrepancies when it comes to gender in the workplace, but I am very glad for how far we've come...and I'm proud to stand on those padded shoulders that came before me.
