Columnist’s view kept with old stereotypes | Letter

August 6, 2013 · 10:49 AM

According to Rich Elfers (In Focus, July 24) women only need be armed with “the pill” to reach their peak in business, society and life in general.

According to what was written, increased promiscuity, much like that of too many hormonal driven males, opens doors and shatters the glass ceiling that has thwarted women for generations. No amount of education, mental acumen, skill, talent, or drive will permit achievement for women – only the pill does it.

Mr. Elfers’ view continues the demeaning stereotype that women cannot be successful on personal merit but must conform to the male chauvinist principles espoused in the column.

Spare me!
