Since I started blogging about gender parity almost four years ago, not much has changed – except perhaps that there seems finally to be a much-needed groundswell of feminine voice calling for more feminine voice in all spheres of human endeavor, most notably in the media. Films such at Miss Representation and Get Real: Wise Women Speak are two that I would highly recommend.

Get reading. Get watching. Get going: do your part to make change!

    Hi from Australia!
    I just read Geraldine Brown's e chapters; they are useful for those who are not already aware of the gender discrepancies in this society. However, I was surprised to see that Geraldine did not give recognition to women's organisational, farming, hunting, making and management skills in the pre-industrial era of the western world. We were much more (more in the sense of 'amount') than "homemakers, mothers and nurturers." We were the other half in the survival relationship; comparisons can be had with contemporary tribal societies that show this. Sexism is rife in Australia as it is in the UK and the USA. I lived in the UK for the first 23 years of my life and the remainder in Australia and lately the USA. We need more women in politics to make the changes we need; the current attacks on women from the republican party are horrendous and must be stopped.
    'Have a safe journey everyone,' June.
