I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the title of this fast food restaurant in Augusta, Georgia. You would never see such a blatantly sexist name in California - at least not since the '50's or so. But when I brought it up to the training class at the Augusta office, they couldn't understand why I'd be offended. I had to explain to them, "the implication is that only wives cook dinner so by taking the family out to dinner you're saving the wife from working." The response? "Well, you are."

    This kind of sexism is still present throughout our culture. Ever notice that only women are seen in ads for cleaning products?

    Oh, yes - I notice that. Believe me, I notice that!!!! It makes my blood boil. And I also get angry with the sexism inherent in children's toys. Like only the girls can play with dolls and only the boys can play with cars. It's all so annoying.
