France, Norway, Wales.

The air is full of the smell of Cottonwood.

I took Whisky for an extra walk this evening at 19.00 and it was still light. Right now we're only seven hours behind Britain, but that will change on Sunday.

Elder Stateswoman of France, Simone Weil, survivor of Auschwitz, women's reproductive rights champion, has been honoured by her country and made a member of the Académie Française. Link from Sleepy.

Nice to hear via Feministing, from a young man who really understands privilege. And what a well written piece. And I particularly respect his final sentence,
"Even though I benefit from these labels, it is my responsibility to work to change things for the better."

Norway's minister for Gender Equality and Children's Affairs says that Norway became prosperous (and Norway IS prosperous) because they invested in gender equality. Feminist Philosophers.

And lastly from Bozo5, what happens in a bilingual country when you don't pay attention. That one really tickled me!
