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.

Name: Mary-Ann Mouritz
Location: Perth, Western Australia
E-Mail: kimmouritz@iprimus.com.au

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.
I am aware that my great-great grandfather, George Miller Gavel jumped ship with his brother, Andrew Stillman Gavel, at Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne, to go to the Goldfields of Victoria, Australia, in the 1840-1850's, as a young men. George married a local landowner's daughter and took up land in Kyneton, Victoria for 20 years, and later moved to Condobolin, central N.S.W, where with his family, he ran a sheep station of about 30,000 acres in his lifetime, and his son's and later, his grandson, John continued the tradition. George Miller was known as a grazier, and grew well-to-do upon hard work and the wool from the sheep's back. An era now gone, but one still in existence in my childhood in the 1950's, in my grandfather's time. My uncle Dick Gavel and various cousins still own some of the original Lachlan riverland property.

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 and USA.
My grandfather adhered to supposedly Scottish roots of belonging to the Presbyterian Church of Australia along with his wife, Winifred Doreeen Gavel, but I question that is the real background of the surname, according to some accounts read upon some Gavel websites.

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.

Comments: Hi,
I am not planning to move to Yarmouth, altho we have visited there in years past and would like to again !  I have been trying for years to trace an ancestor, William Whitehouse, born 1781, of Roberts Island, Glenwood, Yarmouth Cty. NS.  I have located other descendants of his, and all are searching for the same info....I have tried to find out who his parents were, and where they came from.  I have been told that he may have been the son of a British Loyalist soldier in the Revolution, but nothing definite has turned up.  A book published by a family member, Charles Jackson Ricker, tells us that he was an orphan to came to NS with a group of settlers from the USA, landing at Shelburne, NS.  He was supposedly adopted by the family of Jeremiah Frost.  We have been going in circles like this for years....my father once said that his family were members of a Congregational church, possibly at Chebogue?  Is there anyone you can put me in touch with who might have some information on this?  I have contacted Eric Whitehouse, who owns a bookstore in Yarmouth, but he did not give me much information....Is there anyone else you could give me an address or email address to contact ?  Thank you very much, Jan (Whitehouse) Weems

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.

Comments: Greetings, I am seeking information on the Muise branch of my family tree and am hoping someone can assist me. I very recently came across my great grand-mother's death certificate and that is what inspired me to TRY and find out more. This is what I have thus far: Mary Martha Muise b.June 28, 1871, Surette's Is., d. Dec. 29, 1944, Yarmouth,
d/o Cyril Muise, Sluice Pt.,& Elizabeth Muise, Surette's Is., married to Frank Muise. He died after Martha ca 1946. I think Frank may have been from Morris Is. as some of the children were born there. That is all I know about Frank. They did have a large family & I have their names & year of birth if required. I realize I should have asked these questions long ago when there was someone in 'the know' who could have answered them. It's sad but true that time waits for no one. so if anyone of you has questions, ask now tomorrow may be too late.
Thanking you for your time and to other genealogy buffs, happy hunting.
