I refer to Reena Budree's opinion piece ""The Melius Malady"" Commitment - a professional female's perspective' in 1999 (Apr) DR 10, which I found well written but flawed in two respects. The point of departure occurs when Ms Budree asserts that, due to the fact that the progress of women in the marketplace is being measured by existing norms, which find expression in the 'white male' norm, women must in most instances behave like men. The flaw lies in Ms Budree's perception of what that behaviour entails.
