Question of the day

Jul 24, 2015

Our last question asked: Washington Post's Petula Dvorak is exploring what phenomenon as an unexpected symptom of the patriarchy? That would be freezing air conditioning in the summer (better suited to men in heavy, navy suits than women dressed for summer). "I'm sorry, but, yes. Your freezing office is also about the overbearing patriarchy," Dvorak tweets.

Congratulations to Minna of Conover + Gould for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to Maureen MacGregor, Bridget O'Brian (who bills it "Female frigidity in the workplace--and get your mind out of the gutter"), Hollywood Highlands, Jason K. Burnett (who says of Dvorak "I think she's right"), Waterfield Designs (who claims "Not a problem [here] in San Francisco!") and Ron Casalotti (whose answer was "Air-conditioning... another, big, sexist plot").

As for today's question, here it is: For the New York Times, Elizabeth Weil explores why it's so hard to find what in California? Click here to submit your answer to @MuckRack.
