Any woman in ELSNET? comments on that issue only from men?
I may say that I would not accept to work in a country in which women are
discriminated in this way. And I feel proud of being part of a European culture
in which this kind of discriminations are not admitted. Multiculturalism is a
richness, but being open to other cultures does not mean necessarily accepting
discriminating and unfair rules.
