It’s 100 years since the suffragettes fought for and won the right to vote. In our present epoch of unfair pay differentials and glass ceilings in the work place, sexual harassment in our “civilised world” and women’s continued subjugation in less enlightened parts of the globe, we have to ask ourselves, is it time to insist? Gender equality is valuable to us all, whether locally or globally.
Challenging inequality, wherever it exists, is not just our personal responsibility, but the responsibility of all.
Time to insist?
