Today is blog against sexism day

And I'd participate except that I'm studying for my Women and Work exam tomorrow.

The exam is on various historical instances of sexism in the American work place, including domestic labor, factory work (think Triangle Shirtwaist), unions, promotions, hiring practices, pay scales, undervalued "pink collar" work, racism (against African Americans, Asians, Irish (did you know that the Irish weren't considered "white" in the 1800's?)), etc. etc.
