There are some people who can casually stroll through their international travels on a wing and a prayer. Hell, they don’t even need the prayer. I met a girl like that in Thailand, a six foot tall Australian who had picked her way to the WFFT animal rescue centre via a series of buses and...Read More
Despite persistent inequality between men and women in our society, the achievement of women’s right to vote was a big step towards bridging that inequality, moving this country away from the sexism, prejudice and bigotry of an aggressively patriarchal society.
