Just. LOL. I have left this one alone for a few years.
But, given that women’s rights are receding, yes, receding, why not write about it?
Gender pay gap
One hundred and seventy years.
Yes, for all those doubters out there, despite women gaining education on a par with men or exceeding them, they still don’t receive the dosh.
And won’t. Well after my lifetime.
And from the UN, women in the changing world of work
Against this backdrop, only 50 per cent of working age women are represented in the labour force globally, compared to 76 per cent of men. What’s more, an overwhelming majority of women are in the informal economy, subsidizing care and domestic work, and concentrated in lower-paid, lower-skill occupations with little or no social protection. Achieving gender equality in the world of work is imperative for sustainable development.
Record high in the UK.
Abortion? In America. Not. Going. There.
I read this on another blog the other day. If feminism was remotely potent we wouldn’t have a gender pay gap, escalating sex crimes, women without health care, education, and dying from reproduction. Or restriction to access for contraception or abortion. Potent feminism my arse.
I’ll finish off with a difficult point.
Women are born with XX chromosomes. They normally have periods and can produce babies. Which makes them useful.
Men who think they are women can do none of those things.
So, everyone who agrees that men who think they are women, is living in la-la-land.
At the moment, when women should be fighting for serious issues, like education, health care, equal employment, we are being derided and abused by the trans lobby; lesbians are told to accept ‘transwomen’ with a penis, and toilets, changing rooms, dormitories, domestic shelters are no longer for women only.
I don’t give two hoots if some man wants to wear make-up, frilly frocks and high heels. It will never make him a woman. Nor will surgery or drugs.
So, can we concentrate on biological women and their inequality which is not getting better and is only being eroded by the trans agenda?
ETA for those of you who like vids, Julie Bindel and er, someone
