Gender bias

A leading software company has sent out letters to placement incharges of different colleges in Mumbai asking them to send information about female students of the college. This was with regards to a unique and a rather quirky way in which the company intends to celebrate the women's day.

The company announced that it would visit different colleges (specifically in this case, some colleges in Mumbai) and recruit 'only female students'. And this on-campus drive is once per batch.

The male students of the same batch will NOT get to appear for the recruitment process on-campus for the company.

This is certainly not women empowerment. Women empowerment does not call for crippling the moustached sex.

This is unfair.

And this company is Microsoft.
