Of the girl!!

Aha, a festival for International Day of the Girl.


What is Shona?

Nice, so all this is about empowering girls. Fair play to them.

So much for empowering girls and International Day of the Girl.

Updating to add: There’s another one, because of course there is.


It seems she is a woman, but considers herself too special and interesting to be called a woman.

‘I think I might be genderqueer, or non-binary,” I said to my kids. They looked nonplussed. “I might have a hard time not calling you Mum,” one replied, “But I’ll try.”

“I’ll always be Mum,” I assured her.

But I’ll be Mum who is too special to be called a woman.
