March is Women's History Month, where we honor women's contributions to society. Part of that includes celebrating women continuing to make great strides in the workplace. In many companies, however, there may be a glass ceiling for women in the workforce who are trying to reach the executive suites.
There are plenty of fans of the long-running game show "The Price Is Right" here in Detroit, so it's fair to assume that a few of us are aware that lawsuits by "Barker's Beauties," the female models who promote the show's prizes, are not uncommon.
Detroit readers might have seen a photograph circulated on media outlets a few weeks ago of two military mothers breastfeeding their children while uniform. The photographer who took the image took the picture as part of a campaign to support working mothers and women who are breastfeeding. Now, she claims that position is part of the reason why she was recently dismissed from her civilian job.
