Just that, really. I'm pretty pissed off with the status quo - with the gender pay gap, with the under-representation of women in public life, with inequality at home and in the workplace... What can I do? I'm not even a member of the Fawcett Society makes mental note but I fancy something more active.

What should I do? Any ideas, wise women?

My personal rebellion.

I have some shares, not many but it means that every year I get to vote in the shareholders meeting.

I always vote for the women on the board and against the men.

Hey unclefluffy,

Check out The Hunger Project UK. An organization helping communities around the world establish stable, gender-equal, healthy societies: www.thehungerproject.co.uk/whatwedo/millenniumdevelopmentgoals/

If you're interested in promoting this cause (and near the Thames River area), I'm trying to form a team for The Hunger Project Thames Path Challenge. Let me know! smile

If there is a gender pay gap, you Gould take it up with your employer. They should be aware that I they are discriminating on the basis of your sex then they are breaking the law.

It's a small thing to start with but you could sign the NoMorePage3 petition:


The campaign against page 3 has also spawned lots of local groups of very nice people who are also angry and want change - lots have just formed in the last few weeks so should be full of energy and inspiration! It might be worth investigating your nearest one.
