Why women shouldn't make tea at work

Why women shouldn't make tea at work

Although women have made strides at breaking the ‘glass ceiling’ at work, successive research suggests females are still lagging behind their male counterparts.

One of the theories accounting for women’s’ inability to be on equal footing with men is that females are not ‘pushy’ enough to ask for pay rises.

    I'm sorry, so you should lie about the reasons for not going to work? That's daft, it shouldn't matter if your kids are sick. Plus, not pouring the tea is fair enough but not if it means you'll miss out on a beverage because every male in the room can't lift a cup. Pour yourself one but don't 'play mother' and do the entire room, much more sensible.
