So at the G20 summit, the spouses had their own dinner, apart from the leaders. It wasn't really the "spouses." It was a dinner for the wives. Apparently they had other "important" women at the dinner, including Naomi Campbell. Tell me: in what universe is walking up and down a runway considered important work? Bleck, bleck, bleck. Yes, I recognize this is a snarky comment. But where are the women who are scientists, teachers, economists, engineers, doctors, wise women? Don't they exist in England? What happened to our world that all this superficial crap is considered important?

The whole thing reminds me of the Stepford Wives and makes me queasy. Anyone who thinks sexism is dead and that equality between men and women has been achieved need only go as far as this to realize it ain't so.
