Happy Women’s History month!

One of my clients is a CEO of a STEM firm in Manhattan. The coop application asked the CEO to enter “Name of Applicant” and underneath “Wife’s Maiden Name.” The CEO Applicant happens to be a woman. She doesn’t have a wife; she has a husband. But the application, it seems, didn’t expect a coop Applicant to be a woman. Or that women would get married and keep their names. This happened last week in New York City. In 2021.

Happy Women’s History month! I am grateful for all the women who came before me who made it possible for me to be an “Applicant,” even though it seems some things still need updating.
