Years ago women weren’t allowed even to publish things other stuff about children and famillies. Even writing about nature was ‘pushing the boundary’ a bit.
Remember how they used to write under male names. How suppressed we were then. Luckily with the Suffrogette Movement and, ironically, with WW1, things slowly began to change. It is quite amazing that I am able to blog to you without being ‘hampered’ otherwise this blog would have to be written under ‘Veloman’! So I am fascinated by feminism and justice although to some people, it scares them, but it is really a question of not being ‘walked all over really.’ I always admire ‘enlightened pro-feminist men’, that’s really quite brave!
Anyway, I will note this Conference in my diary.
