Controversy over a SOMA-based startup (The UDDA) that posted an ad on craigslist in June 2014 seeking a "Girl Friday" to do all kinds of stuff around the office including cooking paleo meals, office work, social media, design, and more. This created a bit of a firestorm.
After the original craigslist ad circled around on twitter, it got posted to Valleywag and then other places. Then there was a feminist protest outside UDDA's office on June 13th (pics on the facebook event page & here's an article about it from before it happened).
