2. I think there needs to be a study of this trend
and a solution to the problem worked out. I don't want to see men disadvantaged anymore than I want to see women or minoriites disadvantaged. I am really curious as to the causes of this. Possibly the fact that women feel they have to work harder to get the same recognition as men?
