In The Year 1910

A law society had a meeting and one of the sections was about:

"distinguished panel of gentlemen from the legal field will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of women in the areas of communication, negotiation, mediation, arbitration, organization and women's overall management of their legal work."

Mmm. Except the year was 2010! Don't faint, dear ladies. And under no circumstances ask yourself if you should do some kind of replacement there, such as replacing "gentlemen" with "Anglo experts" and "women" with "Latino lawyers!" Don't do that.

To be fair, the gentlemen decided to change that section description a bit and also decided to add a few lady lawyers to the panel. So all is well.
