“Binders” of Women

A few years ago, I got a phone call from a headhunter who had been given my name in connection with a position he was trying to fill. After I answered the phone, he introduced himself, confessed that he didn’t realize who I was working for until our receptionist answered the phone and concluded with “so M. finally got her female engineer“. It turns out that one of our execs had repeatedly asked him to find her a woman.

Romney’s comment during the second Presidential debate may have been poorly worded, but I can’t find any fault in what he did nor can I understand why it’s being portrayed as a huge issue by the media.
