feminaust ~ for australian feminism

friday feminaust ~ Matilda BransonI grew up on a farm one of three girls, a strong mother imbued with a good dose of feminist values and a father whose response to a friend in the local pub one night when we were having a knock off drink – beer for him, and raspberry lemonade for me, aged seven – was as follows:

Dad: “Why would I need a boy? I’ve got three girls.”

Stony, awkward silence followed.
