New Jersey Employment and Civil Rights Trial Attorney Discusses the Role of Women in the Economy
I read a very amusing and very pertinent "commentary" piece by Kathleen J. Wu in the New Jersey Law Journal, September 1, 2014. Being an inveterate nerd from my youngest years, I've always loved the Planet of the Apes and any article in a legal publications that has "Planet of the Apes" in the title is bound to get read by me, even if I have to start reading things about bankruptcy or taxes later on in the article.
Kathleen was talking about "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," the recent "reboot" of same story from the 70's - the "old" Planet of the Apes franchise - where the apes rise up and conquer the homo sapiens' world. No spoilers here, but the apes win.
Her point in mentioning the movie was to talk about the lack of strong female characters in the film as an example of what's still wrong with our commercial and professional culture. It's an infirmity that still, surprisingly, afflicts many Hollywood movies that aren't about women's issues specifically.
