Theorizing Public Policy: Why does it matter for Women

After learning about Equal Rights Amendment and that men and women hold equal rights guaranteed by the constitution, I have a question for you all.
I am working for a baseball team and we have to sign a contract not to fraternize with the players, which when working with sports is expected. It's my job to work with them but no outside relations. However, out of the 8 interns, only three ladies had to sign the contract. We have boys as well as two other girls working with us that did not have to sign it? What does that mean?
My boss didn't have to sign it and he has come out and met us out at a bar why isn't that fraternizing. I just feel that some people at work because we are lets say pretty girls have different rights and feel being treated unfairly.
If you look at women in the work force it makes you wonder. Yes, we finally get equal rights and equal pay but their is still a lot of unequal things going on inside many work places. It's like when people say "she slept her way to the top, just because she might have a pretty face. Women have talent and just because our looks shouldn't treat us unequal.

  1. Wow - that's really interesting. I don't know much about the legal aspects of contracts, but I would imagine that if there's a no fraternizing rule for some, there should definitely be a no fraternizing rule for all. Huh.
