"There were no mail boys at Newsweek, only mail girls. If you were a college graduate (like me) who had worked on your college newspaper (like me) and you were a girl (like me), they hired you as a mail girl. If you were a boy (unlike me) with exactly the same qualifications, they hired you as a reporter and sent you to a bureau somewhere in America. This was unjust but it was 1962, so it was the way things were."

Nora Ephron, I Remember Nothing (via newsweek)


FYI — when I was hired at my first newspaper job as a reporter in, oh October 2005, I was making less than $12 an hour. When two men were hired on, both who had the same credentials as me, guess who started out making over $14 an hour. Yep.
