Now, I don't want to perpetuate the whole war of the genders but...I found this quote by Charlotte Whitton which I thought amusing because it definately rings true for me. What do you ladies think?

"Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily this is not difficult."
Charlotte Whitton, Canada Month, June 1963

I didn't think my 1000th post on the forums would be another one on women professionals. I guess in some professions this could be true. I personally know some women firefighters and EMS personnel who work their asses off and do a damn good job at what they do. Doing the job twice as well and only thought as half as good isn't true at all. We all do the job, and when he get the fire out or the patient to the ER and return to quarters with everyone safe, uninjured and accounted for we have done a true good job. THATS the true measure of a good job.
