My comment – just some of my green questions about women in elite’s old boys networks:

  • Could it be that not enough women are accepting old boys networks’ hidden betrayals, meannesses, blackmailings?
  • Could it be not enough women are able to give men the feeling of security needed to continue their normal dirty plays?
