Iron My Pants!

File this one under "What second-wave feminist movement?"

From the UK -- Secretaries asked to darn bosses' trousers, survey shows:

Secretaries are bullied, undervalued and asked by their boss to perform inappropriate tasks such as sewing up a trouser seam, walking a dog or helping with a child's homework, according to new research. . . One secretary had to bathe her boss's elderly mother, another was asked to make curtains and one respondent said she had to hold her boss's hand on a car journey.
