"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."

Surprisingly, several studies have found that it’s actually a disadvantage for a woman to be physically attractive when applying for a managerial job. Beautiful applicants received lower ratings, apparently because they were subconsciously pegged as stereotypically female and therefore unsuited for a job as a boss. - Nicholas D. Kristof, "When Women Rule," New York Times

Well, you know, they say that a disproportionate number of the women in positions of power in this country graduated from women's colleges. Is it their education or self-selection? XD
