Re: Fine print
Thanks, Kelsey! The sexual harassment issue definitely felt like it needed to be put into perspective. It's horrible any way you slice it, but this is a much larger issue than the tech bubble, and it certainly didn't start (and it won't end) in this industry. Every week there's another article about how bad women in tech have it in terms of sexual harassment, pay, treatment, etc., but they also have it better than most other women around the world on all of those issues, so, here's a dose of reality!

The tampon issue is funny. It's insulting to NOT be given free tampons in an office but it's silly for them to be seen as an actual perk/benefit as well. Just give them to employees and don't make a fuss over it! ; )

Fine print
The fine print on the Feminist Fight Club book that it's 21% more expensive for men is too clever! Thanks for putting sexual harassment in perspective as an issue that's not exclusive to women in tech but that affects women everyone. I had to laugh at the free tampons...sigh. Free toilet paper is a great perk, too! ;)
