Proud single parent to two feminist grown up sons

Equality needs to start at birth. Inequality implicitly begins when the gender of a child is revealed. It's up to parents to reject the rigid gender constraints placed upon children from the moment they're born.

Change is never easy but have to find a way!

It's too easy to sit back and feel that others can take care of the big picture. We are the picture..we have to be the change.

We must brace ourselves for those against change. Time to make those changes.

The history of liberation has been marred by onslaughts of abuse, so it has been since 14th century one step forward and one step back. Time now to take charge and educate those with prejudices against us and future generations to show what women can achieve.

It is about time

It is about time to put end to all the horror women go through: violence, sexual harassment, rapes, prostitution It is about time that house care is shared as well as fair payment, great careers and opportunities out there It is about time that people will be treated as humans, no matter what gender they got And I don't see our fellow men who got the power putting this at the top of their agenda.

Things have to change.

I think we would do a better job when it comes to teaching the youth of our country that we each have responsibilities as well as rights.

Fairness

I have always believed in fairness in all aspects of life and if society isn't fair action must be taken to change it

Imbalance of power between genders results in Hell on Earth

e.g ISIS/ISAL and all the other jolly places run entirely by men without the equal and proper input of women. Practically everything in nature requires the balance of the two but it may interest those to know that ALL herd mammals refer to a main female to lead them - making all the major decisions - and it works! It hasn't benefited any humans to have the male solely in charge in whatever social capacity so women need to get up there, stop being brainwashed (like my Mother and her generation) and bring their great attributes and different mind set to the table. My Mother used to say, to my intense irritation, that women were the power behind the throne and that should be enough for them. At 13 surrounded by the inadequate men of my dysfunctional family and a Stepfather with a violent personality disorder I asked ' What throne would that be? Why does there have to be one anyway and if he's (my Stepfather) parked his arse in it then wouldn't you say we are all bound to Hell in a handcart?" .

For all genders, ages and abilities.

A more equitable society will be a more contented and productive one.

Please note women are not a "gender"!

Women are discrimination against on the basis of our biological sex. That's why we have a sex discrimination act. Please dont fall for the weasel words and style guides from the media that are trying to hide discrimination against women by talking about "gender". Gender discrimination is when a woman is chastised for having "manly" interests, clothing or appearance, or a man is ridiculed for appearing feminine and not having "traditional" ie society imposed male interests or behaviours.

I hope the new party is successful!

I have always been interested in politics - my mother was a local councillor and was successful! I like Sandy Toksvig - I hope she is a success - along with the rest of the party!

Bored of inequality and objectification

A build-up of experiences brought me here. I have sadly experienced too much sexism and it has to be stopped and taken seriously. I hope WE can achieve an equal society where women are safe and able to achieve what they can without inhibition.

If you're not part of the solution...

I have come to believe that gender bias is the one form of discrimination that has fully permeated our culture. What makes it so pervasive is that many people, men and women alike, don't recognise that there even is a problem. Any action, no matter how small or seemingly innocuous, that can perpetuate this inequality is contributing to a culture that places men above women. So any comment unchallenged or inequity unrecognised is tacit acceptance of a status quo that is anything but. For too long, I have been part of this problem, but hopefully, now I can be a small part of the solution.

Women are my heroes

At the age of 61 I feel that I'm almost a grown-up. I'm the mother of 4 children and grandmother to 8 (with another on the way). I was in an abusive marriage for 14 years before I plucked up the courage to leave. My saviour was Women's Aid who, when I asked them 'what am I doing wrong' told me 'nothing, this is his problem not yours'. They didn't tell me to leave him, they just said that they would be there if I needed them and they were. There are lots of women like me. Nobody teaches you how to deal with abuse and everyone's story is different. Now my children are all grown and I'm proud of them and how I raised them, almost single-handed. My saviours were my friends and family and a whole lot of women who helped me to look after, inspire, educate and care for my children. I have been discriminated against by banks, councils, politicians, and society in general. I think I deserve a medal for bringing my children up by myself. I want to get the message across that single parents don't choose that life and they need to be given choices to deal with the circumstances they find themselves in. Please lobby to fund Women's Aid and organisations like that and stop the politicians from messing with Child Benefit - without it there were weeks when we would have had nothing to live on.

Tired and angry; Equailty has never mattered so much

I am tired and angry. I am tired of having to explain that wanting equality, doesn't mean I am trying to take away men's rights. I am tired of having more qualifications and work experience than my male colleagues, however they are picked first for consultancy roles. I am angry that my wedding ring has more power to spurn unwanted advances than my actual voice. I am tired of men trying to "mansplain" things to me. I am angry that I am called, irrational, hysterical or even just "at that time of the month" when I speak passionately about something. And I am absolutely incredulous, at the fact that the above still occurs. It is 2015, and enough is enough. WE is desperately require, change is needed, more Equailty conversations at government level have to be listened to, along with sustained systematic change to address equaility issues must occur. WE can not sit back. WE must not let this continue. WE will bring change.

28 years in an environment where I was not 'me'. I could excel outside but never within the home!

In my business world I achieved, I was promoted, valued, I inspired...in his world I became nothing...no voice only tears. For 28 years then I left - freedom!. My first butterfly wing, the second came on retiring from an autocratic organisation - the freedom of voice and choice was awesome!
