Is the ‘PR Bunny’ Myth a Real Thing?

Dear Professional PR Women,

Take a minute to check out this great Flack Me blog post lamenting what author Kimberly Shrack calls “The ‘PR Bunny’ Myth” and let us know: Do gender stereotypes pervade the PR industry? If so, how often do you experience them in your professional lives? Do people draw unflattering conclusions as soon as they hear that you work in public relations? How do you deal with offensive generalizations drawn from stock characters in movies and TV shows? We’d love some feedback.

(In frankly unrelated news: Arrested Development never gets old, does it?)
