Comments: Gender Bias in Employment
Dear Mayor Crosby:
Since the late 1960's, the womens' groups and feminists have complained publicly (and justifiably so) that the managerial and executive ranks in most corporations are almost exclusively male. They claim that this discriminatory work enviroment keeps women out of high paying, decision making positions and is unfair. Demonstrably, the womens' groups are right. Researching an accusation such as this seems silly. All one has to do is go and look. Women are disadvantaged in the employment marketplace.
However, there is a provocative and contradictory view regarding this gender bias in employment issue that is not as widely disseminated in the media but which can readily be found on the world wide web.
This view holds that those same employers excoriated by the feminists implemented hiring policies for white collar staff (in contrast to management) which gave almost all of the staff jobs to women because women not likely to be vulnerable to compulsory military service in the event of war. The employers have been doing this since 1945.
During WWII, those employers lost a lot of their staff expertise to the military as their then male white collar staffers left for the war. During the war, the women proved their employability and it was obvious they would never have the potential to be cannon fodder in future wars as their male counterparts were so at war's end the employers kept the men who were lucky enough to return from the war off staff. That is, the men coming back just were not rehired.
Male management. Female staff. The major white collar corporations structured this employment environment at the end of the Second World War. We still have the same corrupt, arbitrary employment environment today.
For reference visit:
Does this email give you a different "take" on the gender bias in employment issue? If you find the view interesting, why not discuss it with your friends and, particularly, your colleagues. If at all possible, I have sent them a copy of this email. Also, if you or anyone that you know would like to post this email on the "web", please feel free to do so.

Comments: Being a member of the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association finding
a canoe, cedar ribs and planking with fiberglass skin inscribed "Hand
Crafted by Willard Hewey , Lake Annis, N. S." was a treasure in itself.
What could only add to its beauty would be any information about
the maker, its purpose, e.g. camp, hunting,fishing, personal recreation?
Should this information be forwarded to me it will be given to the next
to inherit the canoe. Thanks to any and all to respond.

Name: Mary-Ann Mouritz
Location: Perth, Western Australia
Comments: My name is MaryAnn Mouritz of Perth, Western Australi and I am the grand-daughter of a John Henderson Gavel from Condobolin, New South Wales, Australia, and I am looking for connections from the Gavel's of Gavelton, Nova Scotia, who believe they may have some connection to us in Australia.
I have an aunt Louise Gavel, who visited Yarmouth, Nova Scotia in the
1970's, who is still living in Condobolin, (nee Calton). Louise is the
youngest daughter of John Henderson Gavel, as above, and my mother is Ann
Henderson Tunks (nee Gavel) of Condobolin, also still living there.
Please contact me if you believe you have some connection, as I am very
interested to discover the origins of the Gavel family, pre-Nova Scotia
and some of the history of Nova Scotia itself and in relation to Canada
My daughter, Katey Ann Mouritz recently joined the Australian Navy and
by doing so, has highlighted to us the historical sea-faring history of
the family. She is a navigation officer and that is a similar position
to which George Miller is believed to have held upon his "uncle's" ship,
upon his arrival to Australian shores. Seafaring is perhaps common to some
families, but does not seem so to those of us who have spent several generations
living in the inner regions of Australia upon the land, although it is
a passtime many Australians have.

Name: Don (The Butcher)
Location: Cle Elum, washington
Comments: This photo was just brought into our meat martket here in
Cle Elum, Wa. (Owens Meats) by a local who does underwater log recovery.
He told us that this shark was caught up in some hooks and cable line from
a commercial dogfisherman and he responded to a radio call and asked for
his help. Jim Smith told us that he responded and hoisted the fish
onto his boat with a cable wrapped around it's head up the ramp of his
old naval torpedo recovery boat, which is 70 feet long and that while it
was being drug up the ramp it was rocking his boat as the shark was going
crazy just prior to dying. Jim pointed out that it was him standing next
to the shark on the dock, which honestly looked just like him. This all
happened inside Grays Harbor by West Port Washington. Jim told us
that the shark was a great white and measured 15 feet long. We enjoyed
the story untill coming across your web page.
