When is it fair to accuse someone of playing the “race card” or “gender card”?

The bronze statue of a young girl facing the Wall Street Bull will continue to provoke big firms to include more women on boards. It isn’t just the right thing to do; it’s the smart thing to do.
When a man avoids social contact with women colleagues, that may avoid the appearance of impropriety. But it stereotypes and excludes women.
My hypothesis is that men as well as women in the workplace are caught up in the gravitational pull of the masculine style. The workplace becomes more masculine, not more balanced.
