“The Globe and Mail has a problem with women. The problem is, women keep quitting. Sources say the paper has a serious management and morale problem, and that many of the women who have quit have born the brunt of the paper’s top-down style.”
–Jesse Brown, Canadaland, July 2, 2015.
A (female) Globe hack responds:
“What a crock of shit! This Canadaland pussy pretends to hold the feminist card and just types out what he is being told to him by some malcontent who is making this crap up.
“There is no feminist pro or anti agenda at work here.
“Men have been shafted as much as women, and Brown makes no mention of former Globe managers like Elena Cherney, [ex-managing editor], Jill Borra [former exec. editor] and Charlene Rooke [departed Custom Content editor], who inflicted more harm on women than any man at the Globe.
The Globe does hate independence and integrity in the staff–men and women. That hasn’t always been the case, but it is now with this new and very stupid, very brutish regime.
But they shafted women? They shafted Martin Mittlesdetadt, they shafted Rick Groen, they shafted Jack Kapica, Rick Salutin, Martin Levin, Jack Kirchhoff, Michael Valpy, Derek DeCloet, Sol Chrom and countless other absolutely brilliant writers and editors. And they shafted little ol’ Dan Driver, who was there forever and knew nothing else.
