"defending this man and his diatribe against women in the workplace "

It's not that at all. Did you actually have your brain engaged when you read his memo? Did you read his memo? He actually said that men and women are different and they both have their strengths and weaknesses. And generally they do. This isn't a diatribe it's an observation. An observation based on the genders as a whole. If you take an average man he is going to be physically stronger than the average woman. The average woman is going to be better able to communicate and operate within a group. This is how we have evolved. Does it mean either is better? NO! JUST DIFFERENT. Difference is actually a good thing. He argues for these strengths to be used to the betterment of the company. This is the worst part of what we're seeing - the idea that we're all the same. We're all different with all our strengths and weaknesses and some of those are inherent due to our gender.
