My hearty congratulations to Suzanne of Big Blue Wave, and all others who supported her blogburst calling for the end of government funding for SOW (Status of Women).
SOW doesn't speak for me either, and I resent taxdollars going to that organization. Their values differ sharply from mine, and probably about half of the rest of the female population in Canada. Let's see a some real equality; not just money going to feminist causes.
Or better yet, let's redirect the funds to our troops in Afghanistan so they will have better equipment.
There may be a few areas such as abuse where women still are vulnerable, but I challenge SOW to prove to me how their grant money is being used efficiently in this regard.
