I don’t play golf, but if I did, should I be able to join the Augusta National Golf Club?
The debate about the ban on women playing at Augusta comes up whenever the Masters is played there.
It seems to really be heating up this year because IBM’s CEO is a woman, Ginni Rometty. And IBM is sponsoring the Masters.
So Rometty breaks the glass ceiling, but can’t join Augusta National, even though other male IBM officers are guaranteed membership?
Through his Press Secretary, President Obama says he thinks women should be allowed to join. Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney agrees, saying if he were a member, he’d want the ban gone.
Do you agree with author and activist Martha Burk, that it’s time for this ban to go by the wayside, that “telling Rometty to be a good girl and wait a little longer with IBM’s collusion would be a disaster“?
Tell me what you think!
