Do 90 percent of women still change their name on marriage?

In this post on Hoopla today, Lisa Linton shared her experiences in being a married woman who has retained her maiden name.  As someone who has done the same (for many of the usual reasons mentioned in her article), it was bound to get my attention.  But it was the comment that “that (there) is […]

Elsie Women’s Refuge for women and children – can you help?

Elsie Women’s Refuge provides a safe haven for women (and their children) who are escaping domestic violence. It then seeks to secure more permanent accommodation for them. Usually the women and children arrive with little, if anything, more than the clothes they are wearing. They are constantly in need of women’s and children’s clothes and […]

The Superwoman Myth – and why it applies just as much to men as to women

“It seems that “having it all” – or, if you prefer, “doing it all” – is no longer a question of “can she?” or “can’t she?”. It is a fact of life”, says Rachel Hills in her weekend article in Sunday Life on The Superwoman Myth.  Hot on the heels of Sarah-Jessica Parker’s new movie […]

Bringing men on the journey towards gender balance – 4 signs of hope!

How do we bring men on the journey towards gender balance?

This is so up my alley. "In order to liberate women, we need to liberate men." (Anne Hathaway - UN Women Goodwill Ambassador).

Check this out, I'm in awe. My friend Ronni Kahn is at it again, disrupting the food supply chain, offering food security to the vulnerable. I've shared before about OzHarvest. When I first met Ronni ten years ago I knew she was special, but what she has achieved and continues to achieve truly blows my mind. She cares so much about the people that OzHarvest serves, and every person in her life, and gives her everything to make sure that no person needs to go hungry. The international expansion of OzHarvest is awesome, and this "take what you need" supermarket in Sydney is just brilliance. Repurposing and rehoming surplus food, keeping it out of landfill so that we all benefit and business overheads are lowered. Win. Win. Win. Love it! ... See MoreSee Less
