Sign Of The Times: Women At Work

“Men at Work” signs are even more outdated then Men At Work’s (the band) hits. Okay, we still get down to their 80′s party tunes, but the biased signs are finally out in Atlanta! It’s all thanks to Cynthia Good, one of the founding editors of PINK and Atlanta Woman magazines. Angered that women working alongside men were being ignored by the sexist signage, Good decided to take matters into her own hands. After politely sending letters to the Mayor Shirley Franklin and Governor Sonny Perdue, she got nowhere. Then, not so politely, she was accused of spray painting a “wo” before one of the the signs, but luckily the police stood by her. Despite the hot water, last week, she decided to turn up the heat on her public campaign. She huffed and puffed at the Public Works Commissioner, Joe Basista, and she blew those signs clear outta town. Now, new ones, which will read “Workers Ahead”, have been ordered. The estimated $166 cost to replace the signs is money well spent! [Atlanta Journal-Constitution via Fark]
