Global Questions

1. Folks, one area of consideration is women in business. While we have our glass ceilings that must be broken, we have a generally accepting position for women in business within the U.S. That acceptance is anywhere near equal in the Middle East and even into advanced countries such as Japan. Female managers have started to appear in Japanese companies but that is a recent change. In the 1980s I was working for Fujitsu and they had their first two female engineers and all the managers could say is they will not be here long because they will get married and they will not be working after that.
