WOW. Your thoughts on this image and article? http://www.thedrinksbusiness.com/2012/12/top-50-most-powerful-women-in-wine-50-41/
Interesting (and I personally think astute) response here: http://www.insideiwm.com/2012/12/06/calling-out-sexism-in-the-wine-industry/
I'll be happy when people can be celebrated by how well they do their job; focusing on the content of their character and not their chromosome. Unless I'm missing something, a wine professional's sex does not influence what is in the glass.
The image has already been changed with a note of apology, it looks like.
Yeah, they changed the image (actually, they first changed it to a similar one as I posted above but the girl had a skirt on and was cupping her boob; THEN they changed it to some lame grapes picture), but the POINT is that anyone thought it was ok to post that picture in the first place. Syd, I agree with your point, though the fact is that the industry is still male-dominated. And I am not upset by that but do wonder why it's the case.
