Thanks MM and everyone else, I find this fascinating.
I am torn between horror that he responded in such a way and feeling that she's "miked" this to raise her own media profile and a little part of me wonders whether it was a trap that she set to goad him. Don't get me wrong, I think it was horribly sexist but I just can't help but feel there is some manipulation.
On the other hand, manipulation or not, you can't respond in that way as it is pretty horrid.
@MM, it's strange your comment about "our daughters" made it feel all the more real, if I had an ambitious daughter and she reached out to various lawyers for advice career help then I'd feel very very uncomfortable with her getting those replies so I guess I'm back full circle and he's guilty!
