  15. Thanks for the comments, all. Yes. For real change to come about, companies, whether led by men or women, will likely have to go beyond just hiring (some) of the women who manage to make their way to the pool of employables. It's disturbing that these guys are supposed to represent the vibrant present and future of the art form, which in a sense they do, and plainly nothing of the sort has even crossed their minds. Maybe Birdsall is right and the ladies are going to have to start a little rock throwing to get the point across.
