I am writing to you to express my shock over the series of comments/letters on “always sleep with the Reuters man”. The topic of women in journalism in the past (and present!!!) is worth exploring and in that context the quote from the book is interesting - but why are you printing sexist (and frankly gross) responses and comments such as “Today, with so many beautiful women journalists being sent to the world’s trouble spots, it must be difficult for Reuters correspondents to concentrate on their job”??? I am still not entirely sure if that isn’t meant to be a joke. If you do see it as a joke, please note many of us do not. I look forward to reading your response.
The Baron publishes a range of comments from Reuters people past and present. It is regretted that in this instance offence was caused - Editor. ■
