Arbeitslose Genderforscherin verklagt Das Patriarchat
An unemployed gender studies major from Eugene, Oregon, sued "The Patriarchy" today in federal court for refusing to give her a job.
In a 25-page brief, attorneys for Sarah Miller-Jones, 24, argue that gender discrimination from the patriarchy has prevented their client from finding gainful employment since she graduated from university three years ago.
The suit seeks $2 million in compensation and $139 million in punitive damages, which together equal $1 from every adult man in America.
"Despite the fact that Ms. Miller-Jones graduated with a 2.8 GPA from the prestigious University of Oregon, she has been unable to find a job fitting her qualifications," the document reads. "Ms. Miller-Jones has been on unemployment benefits for 18 months. And despite extensive coursework in Zambian feminist hip-hop she has only received six job offers -- all of which were for entry-level call center and health care positions. It is outrageous that the patriarchy refuses to offer our client a decent career. She has applied for over 20 positions in the recording, publishing and television industries and has been rejected every single time. We all know that terms like ‘no experience’ and ‘lack of relevant education’ are codewords the patriarchy uses to keep keep women in their place. But Ms. Miller-Jones refuses to be a housewife or a nurse. She deserves a real job."
