Do real men work evenings?

Is it only women and children who stop work in the afternoon and spend their evenings having fun?

According to an (admittedly facetious) email allegedly sent from a hedge fund manager to a client, the answer may well be yes.

In an article that's since been mysteriously pulled from its website, the Telegraph reported last weekend that one London hedge fund manager had allegedly lambasted his clients for being a "bunch of women" and suggested that they "work like real men" and stay in the office after hours.

Independently of the machinations of this particular case (which was also touched upon by The Mirror), is the sentiment behind the alleged email correct? Is evening work mandatory in financial services? And are men its principal practitioners?
