Overall, I thought the piece was very halarious, but also a little sad and disturbing. My favorite part of the movie has to deal with the fact that all the women immediately think that the secretary is sleeping with the boss because the spend time together and she may look a little "like that kind of a girl." Its funny that she didn't realize or stop her boss sooner from his inappropriate acts, but I can also understand that during this time period, women did not have a lot of rights when it comes to the workplace (and still don't in some aspects). In the movie as well, it was completely disgusting how the men in the movie took all the women for granted, and never really repaid them for their work. I liked, however, that at the end of movie, the women all seemed to go for the things they wanted in life, rather than just do what is expected of them. I especially liked that Violet got the promotion that she wanted and deserved, and she was more happy about obtaining that goal and finally having people realize how important and valueable she is.
Unforunately, some of these work stereotypes still exist today. There is still a lot of harassment of women (and men) in the workplace. What angers me most is that people that act like this dont usually see anything wrong with it. Also, women are not nearly as high up in companies as men. While there are many reasons for this, being a "wife first" or "children first" shouldn't have anything to do with the workplace.
