5. Here's one for ya.

From 1976 to 1978 I worked as an administrative assistant at a State Farm agent's office. The agent took time and trained me in all the policies so I could explain and sell the stuff as well as he could. He was very generous in that he would give me a percentage of any policies I sold. Anyway, one day the District Manager came in and was talking to me (OK, he was actually talking with the "girls" on my chest -- creep) and I asked him about me becoming an agent. His response and this is a direct quote: "We don't hire women agents." I was young and still trying to be a "good girl" so I didn't challenge it. Shame on me for that.

Not only did they not hire women, they didn't hire racial minorities. I pulled my insurance from them a LONG time ago.
