I Found Inequities in How Men and Women are Treated in my Own Office

I decided I would put all my preconceived notions aside and search for real inequities in my office here at the radio station. I obviously was not going around the building asking men and women what they make so pay was not a factor in my investigation. So my search was on to find, something, anything that blatantly favored men. I found it in our restrooms. I went into the men’s room.

Yes, that is actually the door to our men’s room marked with a giant “M” just in case you forget after your first trip. I also went into the ladies room.

Again, giant “W” so you don’t forget.

Did you know that in most radio stations there are knobs like this one on the walls all around the building where you can turn the station up or down?

In fact that is a picture of the knob in the men’s room. However when I went in the ladies room to see where their knob was I found this.

Nothing. They have no volume knob. I noticed you could hear the station in the ladies room, it had a speaker, just no knob. So where is the volume for the ladies room controlled? I’ll tell ya where, in the men’s room, that’s where.

Is that fair? I know for me when I am doing my business I like the music loud but what about the ladies? I’d like to know that in the future when they wanna take a s—, they can do it while listening to Tom Petty at the volume of their choice.

A Day without women really opened my eyes and got me looking to see how I could improve the lives of my female co-workers. It’s now my mission in life to get equal volume while dropping a diggity at my office.
