have not read the book but, I did work for 7 years at the national council for catholic women. all women. no men. high powered women running an organization of 3000 parishes. BUT when a man came in, especially a priest or bishop, you could feel the attitude change, they were more simpering, bitchy (!), and less empowered. once he left, back to women in charge. as a psych major, it was lots of fun to watch! I’ve seen this in other jobs – as a 911 operator we were equal male and female, union job so equal pay and benefits. the dispatchers were all female and could handle emergencies on any scale – but in came a cop and jockeying for attention started. these jobs were 30 and 20 years ago but I’m not sure it would be changed now, even with more years of ‘feminism’ in the meantime
