    — YWCA of Canberra (Community Awards)
    — Betty Connelly (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women’s Award)
    — Barnardos Indigenous Supported Play Group/ Indigenous Women’s Network (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Award)

The citation for Louise Taylor went like this:

    Louise Taylor has worked primarily as a criminal lawyer in the ACT. During a significant portion of her seven years with the ACT Director of Public Prosecutions she performed the role of specialist family violence prosecutor. Ms Taylor currently works for the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions as a principal legal officer. She is a long time member of the Management Committee of the ACT Women’s Legal Centre, the Deputy Chair of the Ministerial Advisory Council on Women and is also on the editorial board of The Indigenous Law Bulletin.

Thanks for that, I was wondering.

PB: Women should get awards because some of us have managed to leave the cave and no longer carry a club.

emd said :

Women still earn less than men, and are more likely to be assaulted or raped or murdered than men. We don’t have equality yet.

And the relevance of this is, what exactly?

Something to work on.

LOL.

Thinking there should be equality, and alongside “women’s day awards” there should be an award for men who have achieved good works is “right wing bias’.

You couldn’t make stuff like this up could you?

No surprise to see the ‘rump’ of posteres to this site baring their extreme right-wing bias. You’re just like your fathers, but not dead yet. Something to work on.

sepi, I second your motion.

And the nominations for men’s day are….

PB, for reminding us of the attitudes that inspired the need for women’s awards.

G-Fresh 5:01 pm 06 Mar 09

What are the girls nominated for? Good cooking and sewing?

(I’ll kick us off)

Jeremy Clarkson, for services to common sense in the face of rampant political correctness

“Look mommy – insecure men!”
“There’s nothing quite so attractive, is there darling?”

cranky 4:53 pm 06 Mar 09

Wow. Three out of four have an indigenous connection. Fancy that.

Mr Evil 4:31 pm 06 Mar 09

What – there’s no Transgender Woman’s award???????

R. Slicker 4:15 pm 06 Mar 09

Are we ever going to see “International Men’s Day Awards”? Don’t hold your breath . . .
