Let's do it for Zelda! 50 years ago this year, she chained herself to the Melbourne Commonwealth Building to protest unequal pay. Zelda died last year, without Australia having achieved pay equity in her lifetime.

50 years ago today & the ACTU, led by Bob Hawke, successfully challenged the notion than women shd be paid less than men. In 1969 the pay rates for meat processing workers were changed. The slogan was, 'You've come a long way baby'. And there's still a long way to go.

Women are some of the most prominent faces of the Trump administration. These footsoldiers of the patriarchy have helped to roll back women’s rights while allowing Trump to boast about “empowering women”. You could call it white(woman)washing.

I fell down a strange internet rabbithole and found this video in which Bettina Arndt goes on Andrew Bolt's show and says such implausible things that he can't help laughing at her. It's a must share:

My friend from uni (NYU...very cold) had a particularly awesome one from LL Bean that went all the way down to her feet. Like wearing a giant doona. Your next mission, should you choose to accept...

A blueprint, and a chronicle of evolution as a feminist. Great piece on Gates' new book described as being much more than a self-indulgent manifesto from billionaires playing philanthropy.

From me today on - "if Kerr's comments are to go down in Australian sporting folklore, they should be remembered as a time when one of our brightest stars shone a light on the continued sexism and homophobia faced by women in sport."
