Celebrating Women's Day
by Sandra Martyres
Bookmark and Share
  It was supposed to be a surprise celebration
The whole office was a buzz with speculation
Keeping in mind what was happening around them
They wondered if there would be any breaking news
Or announcements of promotions and quotas
For women on the company's Board of Directors
The grapevine went soon into growth mode creeping
Across the corridors and into and out of the cabins
It was well nourished and cared for until it reached
The CEO's chambers - he, a dour man with white hair
Belonged to the old school and could not understand
What all the fuss was about - all this excitement
About women directors on his board was ridiculous
He scoffed at the management gurus' new mantra
That women Managers were the answer to curbing
Excesses and putting companies back on track - for him
In a male dominated industry women usually played
Just a decorative role like sitting in unobtrusive corners
Taking notes while the male maestros on the Board spoke
Their very presence in the Board Room was an honor
They had no reason to aspire for or expect more in terms
Of either job satisfaction or individual recognition
This whole Women's Day stuff was a heap of nonsense
Used inappropriately by the staff and the press to generate
False hopes and aspirations among his female employees
With that thought in mind, he clipped the grapevine
He sent out a staff memo authorizing all the lady staff
To take a paid holiday and celebrate with their families
It was his way of wishing them - Happy Women's Day!!
