Addressing Sexism in Writing and Publishing

    To add more to the Publishing side of the discussion, my job is all about paperwork and finding paper trails. One day I asked an operations person about a paper trail they may have chased some years ago, but “Unfortunately, it was all part of a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ and we moved ahead without the paperwork.” First of all, this is very annoying news to hear as the aforementioned paper chaser, but more so, the fact that some gentleman’s agreement was made and that was OK WITH EVERYONE. Give me a break. Shaking hands on a deal sounds like something out of the Wild West. And clearly no one thought to say “hmm, maybe we should keep some record for the future.” And not to mention, the phrase “gentleman’s agreement” is such a frustrating legacy term that I hope dies soon. I will continue pushing/chasing papers and I will damn well keep a record of it.
