Damn! $186 per month for basic membership??

Not that I could join (have the wrong plumbing) nor would I really want to regardless... but damn!

Whatever floats der boat I guess...

As for equality... good luck. I couldn't care less at this point.

Everybody wants to be treated fairly, nobody wants to play fair. That's the world... that's humanity... always been that way, always will be.
YES!! that is exactly what I am talking about! Thank you Moon.

This is a direct quote from their site.

"FOUNDING MOTHERS
The women’s club movement was formed in the 19th and early 20th century by pioneering women who provided each other with encouraging community at a time when they needed it most. "
They formed in 2016! The rest is just marketing. Yes there were women's clubs as far back as 1868... this has nothing to do with them. They are simply leading you to infer that they are connected. They are supposedly inspired by them.

From the limited reading I've done it appears that the founders of the wing are using the idea of a "feminist workspace" to exploite women.
Audrey Gelman, aged 32, has an "Estimated Net Worth in 2020" of "$22 Million"

Thanks. The exploiting part was my whole point to begin with.

So is this like the "good old girls club" (sort of like the "good old boys club") where only the wealthy can play?
