    I worked for Walmart setting up a new store one summer a few years ago when I was going to University. (I live in Canada). Most of the managers were women and we had overseers come from the US to help establish the store and half were men and the other women. While I was working there a position came open for managing mens clothing. Men and women applied (I was even encouraged to apply, being such a hard worker, strangely enough) and it was a woman that got the job. I did not realize that things were still so unequal in the workforce. I just watched the movie Iron Jawed Ladies the other day, and was reminded about women's fight to get the vote.
