먼저 지문,

The mayor of a remote Australian town has caused outrage among women across Australia.
John Molony, the mayor of Mt. Isa, a mining town in the Australian Outback, has offended women by making sexist comments. He called on women who were “ugly ducklings” to come to his town to make its male citizens happy. Mt. Isa has a population of almost 25,000 and men outnumber women by a ratio of five to one. Mr. Molony proposed making the numbers more equal by saying: “If there are five [men] to every girl, we should find out where there are beauty-disadvantaged women and ask them to proceed to Mount Isa.” He stated that “not so attractive” women were happy in his town because of a recent or upcoming date.

Many of Mt. Isa’s female residents are up in arms at their mayor’s comments. Patricia O’Callaghan from the Chamber of Commerce said Molony’s remarks were offensive and that "there are a lot of women who are furious”. Many women have hit back. Healthcare worker Catherine Willett said: "To be honest, there just aren't top quality men here….They are too busy drinking beer to notice the women and all they do is whistle or yell as you go past.” Anna Warrick, an occupational therapist, added: "The guys don't make much of an effort with the girls. There isn't much wining and dining going on.” Molony has refused to apologize, saying his comments were “twisted and warped” by the media. He insists he respects women.

이 글을 읽다보니... 오래전에 우리나라 지방도시에서 겪었던 일이 생각납니다.
어느 공장에 기술지원 요청을 받아 약속하고 방문했는데 수위아저씨가 "여자는 공장에 들어오면 재수가 없으니까 다시 돌아가라"고 하시더군요. 
물론 계장님인가... 나오셔서 사과하시고 저도 다시 들어가서 일했는데. 한국엔 그런 곳이 지금은 없겠죠^^;;
