Diversity was an old wooden ship

Some of you may recognize that headline as a line from the Will Ferrell comedy “Anchorman.” In the scene, Ferrell’s character, Ron Burgundy, when asked what “diversity” is, responds, “Well, I could be wrong, but I believe diversity is an old, old wooden ship that was used during the Civil War era.”

The movie centers around a male-dominated news station in the '70s. Burgundy’s response was merely illustrating his ignorance toward women in the workforce. At that time, diversity could have well been an old, old wooden ship.
