Augusta National's Refusal to Admit Women Matters

Date: April 2, 2003
Author: Lisa D. Mickey
QUOTE: Augusta National may seem somewhat insignificant with a war raging in Iraq. But for women, the golfing event couldn't be more important--it is about the corporate acceptance of women.

ABSTRACT: One expert contends that while Augusta National, as a private club, has the right to selective membership, its corporate culture is still discriminatory against women. She argues that corporate sponsors that value the business of women send a message of bigotry when they seek to profit from a prestigious event that deliberately excludes the female gender. --- Sara Holliday
