I was thinking about women's equality and what it means today, what the struggle was for. Do we really have equality? Equality must surely mean equality of responsibility as well as opportunity. Have we taken the same responsibility and, are we even expected to take it whether we want it or not. If equality is simply about choice, then that isn't really equality at all, it's advantage
If we were to become engaged in total war would the call up be imposed on women as well as men and, would women accept it as their duty like so many thousands of men have done in the past.
Just a thought
- There seems to be no area of our lives, whether public or private,that is not subject to the scrutiny of the 'Equality People' Yet, no one ever defines Equality. So, how will we know it when we see it? Is it definable? And are the principles of equality, however we define them, attainable?.Is the ever extending range of government regulation over our lives 'progress'Or,are we on the road to totalitarianism. Are we hindered or helped in our quest for rights and justice through membership of the E.U., U.N.,e.t.c. or, would a strengthening of our own Parliamentary Democracy serve us better. This Blog will comment on equality and related issues with the hope of making some small contribution to the debate. Feel free to post your opinions and share your thoughts and experiences. That way we can get a better idea of how we, the little people really feel about things. And,just maybe,we might even influence the debate!
