So we all know that business circles are very sexist. If it’s not an old boys’ club, then it’s something even worse, a little boy club. These are the young businessmen who believe they are all super duper progressive and pro-women but who are physiologically incapable of processing the information that a woman in their professional circle can be anything but a secretary. They come into the office where a female business owner is sitting at her desk and start bumping around corners in search of the real boss because they can’t conceive of a woman being one. We all know this, so I don’t want to drone on about the painfully obvious.
But here is an interesting observation. If we take Canada, male entrepreneurs from one region stand out in terms of extreme sexism even in this already sexist environment. That region is Quebec. And that’s very very sad.
