A shirt that is called a 'wife beater'?  Seriously?  That is so wrong.

Women's rights are always being pushed around, we finally got universal paid maternity leave last year, lots of placed and business had had some sort of maternity leave, from the basic, we'll keep your job for you, to full pay, or part pay for a set period of time, usually 6 to 18 weeks, now I think you get a year at the unemployment rate. I was flabbergasted with what the Sydney Synod of The Anglican Church (church of england in Australia, I thing it is the Espisoplic Church in the states) has changed the marriage vow, for the woman to say she will submit to her husband!!!! It is only the Sydney Synod (at the moment) they are one of the few Synods that don't allow the ordination of women, but still - submit (shakes head in worry) More women here go to university, finish secondary school, but the average wage for a female is still lower than a male. Yet in some states all tiers of the Government has a female head of state, local, state, federal Vice regal and royal. - it is a real dichotomy of were women and women's rights are.

I guess we only thought that the 21st century was the beginning of the future. It seems instead that it is a return to the dark ages. Are we as women that frightening to men that they need to oppress us at every turn? Seems we are evolving, but they are not.
