You do realize Cheney voted against the Equal Rights Amendment don't you? I realize that was a long time ago, but I still can't trust him enough no matter how much time passes.

Sorry, the ERA did nothing as far as I'm concerned. It was simply another piece of legislation. If women want to get equality in the work place, they must give it. From my experience, most do not. They can not stay until all hours of the night because they have children and families. They do not take the drop of a hat trip to East Boondock City. They do not show up on the weekend even when it isn't absolutely necessary. I did all these things and none of the other women I ever worked with did. I got ahead and they said I was sleeping around. Sorry, I saw a lot of very unprofessional behaviour from the women and then I heard a lot of complaints that they couldn't get ahead.

BTW, none of this is saying that I think that women should be taking the drop of a hat trip instead of taking care of their children. Quite the opposite, but they also need to be realistic about what they are and are not willing to do for the job. If a woman is willing to give 110%, she will be usually compensated.
