I like Elizabeth Warren. I would vote for her if someone can convince her to run.

Prohibiting gender rating in medical coverage (but not other coverage where it benefits women to allow gender rating)
Requirement for companies to have lactation rooms
Requiring quotas for female representation on corporate boards (Europe)
College campus policies that favor women when accusing men of rape
Frivolous gender bias lawsuits and associated legislation (such as Ellen Pao)
Reduced physical qualification standards for jobs (ex. firefighters in NY)
Proliferation of female special interest groups (especially "women at work" organizations)
Support of affirmative action policies that group "women" as a target group

Stupid idea.
Yes, her bonus is her guilt free money. It sounds like she can spend whatever she wants on reasonable purchases for the household. The bonus is when she buys stuff that has no purpose other than being stupid expensive.

Her bonus is strictly 20% of his bonus. If he gets no bonus then she gets no bonus. It's basically their way of splitting up a bunch of money they have no idea what to do with.

Maybe not half, but he does post an awful lot of mysogenistic stuff.

Tomorrow I will try harder.

Made a pretty kick ass dinner at least. That should cancel out some.

I think this was covered. It's a last fling as a couple before you have to deal with the kids.

Not directly, but nearly 100% of executives have a SAH spouse who takes care of all the ordinary stuff that needs to be done so they can concentrate on their employer's problems.

I suspect there's some effect at lower levels of employment, too, but it's quite striking at the top levels.

Maybe.

Swing the pendulum to the other side, and it eventually ends up in the middle.

Our society continues to strive for balance.
