Readers weigh in on gender representation, pay equity, and sardines.


Sadly, the Boston Globe misses one big point, yet again — I would consider Richard Ross, the [Republican] incumbent that Jackie Katz is trying to unseat, the true outsider (“Getting in the Game,” October 29). In a state where we praise diversity, it seems that we do not practice what we preach. Sure, it’s important to have genders represented. However, more importantly and mostly ignored, is the not-as-sexy idea that we should have diversity in thoughts and ideology.

Amazing success (“Companies Profit by Paying Men and Women Equally. Why Don’t They?” October 29)! This is a very clever approach and will have a huge effect on women everywhere for many years to come. Equal pay for equal work  —  it’s not just the law, your stakeholders are demanding it.

Talk about fake news. Woman [sic] take more time off to raise children. It costs them financially. It’s a life choice. More division from the left.

As a sardine lover, I was delighted to see Adam Reid’s Cooking column (November 5). But he highlighted how to cut a spaghetti squash, not choosing among the many varieties of sardines.
