  1. Not a real priority?

      Kermadecs? Major point of disagreement between co-leaders I suspect. The Greens really cocked that one up.

      What about the abuse of male journalists ?

      Really, as women we are in such constant danger in the workplace that perhaps we ought not to be there at all.

      I don’t think that anyone says, thinks or means that only white/white abuse matters ! Some people read far too much into things and set up straw men as a result.

      I heard today that the Captain Marvel film will ’empower’ girls and young women. As most people don’t live in that sort of world, I can’t see how. It seems to glorify violence, apart from anything else, and anyone who can’t see that much of the action is ‘SFX’ must be pretty thick.

        I do hate the idea that women are almost by definition victims, and that it’s sheer chance if we are not.
