Hello Eva (Eve?),
I dont find "Hello Girls" personally offensive, I sometimes say that to friends
it just that in the past I've been flamed for saying it here but maybe
you havent been flamed as much comming from a woman which in any case
is discrimination. As for "a little help" why? If a person's suitability
is not mets in a job then they will not be chosen. Lets say if a man and
a woman went for the same job and there was nothing to choose between them
are you suggesting if the employer is a woman then it is a must for her to
choose a woman?
