Imagine if you will, a large American corporation. They are EOE, and go to great length to make sure the employees feel welcome and accepted at work, and they sponsor a number of good causes.
E.g., they offer a scholarship for daughters of employees who are headed to college.
If this were a private foundation, there wouldnt even be a question in my mind about it. But people are working their behinds off for this company whether they have a daughter or a son, and it appears that a gender-based differential in benefits exists.
Maybe I am seeing this wrong, that there is a bias.
