What Else She Said

There were more problems between men and women than between blacks and whites. The women's movement hadn't hit yet, and although in our personal experience there, I didn't see this a lot, but I know it existed in some pockets more than others--the women were underlings. And in fact, a lot of people believe that the women's movement came a lot out of the civil rights movement, because people realized this, that here we were, all down there together working on the same thing, and yet the women did not have the same respect and power that the men had. There wasn't any real bitterness where I was. In our particular office, it never really came up. Or maybe it did come up, and I was just so used to being a woman in the world that day that I didn't even notice it that much and other women noticed it more.
