New tenure rules for faculty members

I don't remember if I have ever mentioned reporter Rachel Riley before (I'd have to look through my archive! >wink, wink<), but she is my fellow Guadalajaran! She and I went to Mexico together for cross-culturual journalism and were the best of roomies. Our mama, Carmen, would treat me like a princess because I knew Spanish, and would her like a toad because she didn't! We also had a phone fiasco, but I won't get into that! I'll start talking about the article now instead! Some words and phrases I believe were put out of order like, "MU’s Faculty Council on Thursday."
What I don't understand is where this whole other idea came from: "In other business, the council voted unanimously to extend the time to change an incorrectly reported grade from a semester to a year, making it consistent with the policy of removing a “no grade” or an “incomplete.” I realize that this also happened at the meeting, but it doesn't have anything to do with breaching the gender gap. Is this standard for most council coverage?
I do agree, however, with this quote:
'“It’s unfair if they (women) are competing against males who are not primary caregivers,” Prather-Kinsey said.' AMEN, SISTER!
