And I don't think more women need to return to work to ensure equality. They need to have their roles valued no matter what they choose.

Parenting is not the only issue affecting equality.
Another PP gave an example of two entry level positions in a law firm where the male candidate immediately receives a higher rate of pay that the female. How can anyone rationalise this?

So promotion of a man in the boys club, absolutely! I have also seen it in my team where a female colleague who was well known in our team as being lazy and hopeless in her role was part of the womens professional development network who got a promotion without an interview to a position 2 levels above us. The boss in her new area was in the WPDN as was my colleague. I am not, I didn't even get a look in. It happens everywhere and not just to benefit men.
Mens drinks after work, yep, seen that too. Also do you ever go out with just the girls at work and don't invite the boys? What's the difference?
Ever gone out on a girls night without your partner?
Or vice versa? Boys night without you? Nothing wrong with that either.

I think one of the biggest areas of inequality for Australian women is domestic violence and what is being (not) done about it. One woman is killed every week by someone she has a domestic relationship with. Where is the public outcry, the tough new laws? Where is the media each and every time this happens? The system fails women on many levels there and yet- nothing is changing. THIS is a big reason why we still need feminism.

just read the thread this one was derived from and was surprised to see that Supre is called by some the "sl.t shop" or the "wh0re shop".
This is a comment made by women.
In another thread about a TV show, other posters were calling female characters they dislike to "go suck a d1ck" or something along those lines.
We need to start cleaning our own door step. Small step towards less violence directed to women.
