Jill, the executive editor of ‘The New York Times,’ was fired on May 14, and there has been a ton of speculation that she was fired after she suggested she was paid less than a man would be in her position. Do you think this pic was posted to prove she’s a fighter?

Jill Abramson was the first female executive editor at The New York Times, and when she was abruptly fired and quickly replaced by Dean Baquet, theories as to what caused her departure immediately began to circulate. Interestingly, the 60-year-old was seen the day after this news made headlines, at a gym with her daughter, Cornelia Griggs, and she posted the picture to Instagram.

Jill’s daughter posted the photo with the caption: “Badass #girls #pushy.”

What makes this so interesting, is that perhaps it’s a direct response to her being given the boot from her high-powered job.

‘NYTimes’ Makes Statement After Firing

Despite the rumors surrounding reasons why she could have been fired, the newspaper’s publisher, Arthur Sulzberger put out a statement:

Compensation played no part whatsoever in my decision that Jill could not remain as executive editor. Nor did any discussion about compensation. The reason – the only reason – for that decision was concerns I had about some aspects of Jill’s management of our newsroom, which I had previously made clear to her, both face-to-face and in my annual assessment.

It would definitely be horrible if she was fired for asking for more money. The road for women in journalism has been paved by great legends like Barbara Walters and it’s a shame if those types of stereotypes haven’t changed.

HollywoodLifers, what do you think this picture means?
