Would you like a cookie with that Press Release?
Succinct, clear, to the point and oh so true, Sexism in the PR Industry?
Sexism in the PR industry? Don’t you worry your pretty little head over it. It’s 2010 and sexism is alive and well. If you want to be taken seriously and reach the giddy echelons of the A-game players, then you’d better be packing wood. Otherwise, you’re going to need to be an additional 50+ percent better than the boys. Or really cute. Sometimes both. Sad? True. Fighting harder in the marketplace – locally, internationally, across borders – is what the best of us are used to.
Also, her description of the “PR lady” is both hilarious and sad, because it is real.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
