In light of recent events
Women’s rightful places

Watching women in daggy footy shorts run around during the inaugural season of the AFL women’s league required very little getting used to. In just a few months it’s become so normal that I’m embarrassed to explain to my daughters, aged 8 and 11, why the league hasn’t been around since, like, forever. But, because I am such an amazingly progressive, switched-on, feminist dad, I asked them what we should fix next. What other “mostly men stuff” in our world should be “men and women stuff”? This is what they told me.
