So by now we’ve all heard about the Throne Speech and a line to examine our national anthem for gender bias. Apparently at least one Senator, Nancy Ruth, is already hot on this trail.
The Opposition has been quoted as saying this is proof the Conservative government pays only lip service to gender causes, while doing nothing.
But they are wrong. Working hard on nothing of any substance is a hallmark of old-school feminists and therefore, any government, Conservative or Liberal, that wants to curry favour with feminists will quickly find themselves brandishing the most useless of causes.
Real women are out and about, busy, working. Or raising families. Or both.
Welcome to politics.
