    I’ve just read a book by feminist Kat Barnard, ‘The Equality Illusion’. It might be useful to include it on this page since it covers a range of issues that women contend with today and is easily accessible. I’d recommend it to anybody, http://www.katbanyard.org/ – this is a link to her website.
