Sitting down and reviewing the 22 issues of Canadian HR Reporter published in 2012 was a fascinating exercise. Every December I pore over the year’s work in compiling the materials for our Year in Review feature.

This time around, three articles on gender inequality made me do a double-take — the headlines and facts seem, frustratingly, more at home in the 1950s than 2012.
