No Feminist But an Avid Golfer

No Feminist But an Avid Golfer
I was shocked by a statement in “ Maintain Contact With Clients Year-Round .”

As a 34-year-old female CPA, I have been fortunate to have my career in a time when sexism is considered unprofessional and intolerable. Consequently, I have never felt discriminated against, and I have never had to be a feminist. I am, however, an avid golfer. So imagine my surprise when I read the statement, “For instance, if your target market is made up of men and you find out most of them like to golf, you could hold spring golf tune-ups.”
Please find out which of your editors was responsible and get them a cup of coffee so they don’t fall asleep at the wheel again.
