IT WAS interesting to note that Belinda Brooks-Gordon's report stated: "If a woman made a lot of money for the company and could compete with the men in terms of aggression, trading ability or commitment to the job, then she was classed as one of the boys" ("City gents? Brokers use sexist sliding scale in the office", 9 July).

May it not be concluded that even "sexist" brokers are prepared to treat female co-workers as equals, given the proviso that they demonstrably are equals, at least in terms of the criteria by which male workers' value is judged?
