Steve Shaw BS: The murder of Sarah Everard (46) RE: BS: The murder of Sarah Everard 02 Oct 21


Plenty of food for thought there, Eliza. I know that there's a temptation to think of the subjugation of women and girls in religions as a "Muslim thang," but I was brought up a Catholic, and my Catholicism in my formative years was solidly a lads'/men's club in which the inferiority and unsuitability of women for any kind of position in the Church was assumed and unquestioned. Most of the "great composers" and artists were men. As you allude to, there has always been the assumption that women's sport is a lesser light (reflected in lower reward for achievement, something only recently beginning to be addressed).

Without wanting to sound too gloomy, Dave, those children then go home to their parents, aunties, uncles, grannies and grandads, many of whom are still steeped in the old attitudes...

My garden's way too bitty in layout for a ride-on, Eliza.
