heather is better

oh don't take my word for it. this column by heather mallick from june tackles the 'real' women problem succinctly. sure, she uses the safe but relevant argument about international aid for girls and women who have it extra bad, but she packs a real whollop of a point. excerpt:

I fail to see why REAL Women object to the Canadian government sending our citizens to help desperate women around the world. REALists call it "flittering" and "globe-trotting." I thought they just took a plane.

It's bad enough that you appear to despise other women in Canada who are defending women against problems that you may well face yourself one day. But what did the ironed-breast little girls of Cameroon ever do to you?
