> Hey, I don't know if this makes you feel any better, but I definatly emphasize with your situation. I worked as an editor too for a year at a newspaper; but left cause I couldn't handle the political infighting. It was my first job after college, so a definate shock. That workplace had a lot of the same stuff, I saw men who were quite incompetant promoted above me, while my ideas and work were basically ignored. So, I don't think the situation is unique to your job, it exists at least in publishing - probably everywhere. I would say you should stand up for your rights, but I don't feel qualified to give people advice about their own lives. I guess all I can say is I identify with what you're feeling - you're not alone in experiencing this, and hang in there!
Thank you for your response. I hate to cry "sexism" if there are really other factors in place, but I am so sure that more than half the problems both you and I experienced just boil down to sexism. The "Help Wanteds" absolutely sucked for the past few weeks, but I am determined to get this situation straightened out, and it will probably be by landing another job.
