Was Samantha discriminated?  - Worksheet Thumbnail

Target Language or Knowledge:

Samantha finally got her meeting with hotel magnate, Richard Wright.Smart, tough, a real ball buster. I've enjoyed meeting you, but truth be told, Ms. Jones.. your résumé's all fluff. - Fluff? - It's just parties and social events. - What is it that you do in your hotels? Nuclear fission? I admit, I'm intrigued. If I wasn't, you would've been down in the lobby having a cappuccino 10 minutes ago. Here's an idea. I'm talking to Brad Rosen. Maybe you two can get together and share the work. Five hotels, it's a big job. I know it's a big job. That's why I'm still here... and not down in the lobby having a cappuccino.I appreciate your offer...but I don't need a partner. Read between the lines, Ms. Jones. I deal with a lot of businessmen. What are you saying? That businessmen would be more comfortable..dealing with a woman if she were working next to a man? You have a lot to offer. You might want to consider working with a partner who isn't so.. emotional" Emotional" is just code for, "I don't want to hire a woman." Exactly. They're that way at my firm, too.- Think you're gonna cry over a legal brief. - Have you cried over a brief? Yes, but only in the privacy of my office. I have to admit, you're the best person for the job. But I'm not gonna hire you. Give me one legitimate reason why not. - Do I have to say it? - Yes. I'd like to hear the words come out of your mouth. Okay, you slept with my architect. Turns out, Samantha was wrong, men do talk .And I don't wanna get into all that. It happened 100 years ago! I barely know the guy! And how does my personal life affect your business? The more accurate question would be:how does your personal life affect your business? It's too bed,Other than that, you had the job. If I was a guy, you would have shaken my hand..bought me a scotch and given me a key to an office.It's amazing. A man with such innovative vision can be so short-sighted. But Samantha couldn't wait. She could feel the tears building up inside her.
