Good news for women everywhere

Dominique Strauss Kahn has been questioned by the authorities in France. Apparently he didn’t realize that the women at certain parties he attended in top hotels were being paid to be ‘nice’ to him. I don’t understand the prostitution laws in France, but it seems he’s broken at least one of them. This had to be finished in time for him to get to New York where he has unfinished business regarding his ‘behavior’ last May.

The man responsible for the company which produced PIP breast implants, Jean-Claude Mas, has been in custody since 6th March as his bail hasn’t been paid.

It’s good that justice is being done, but isn’t it sad that we still have a long way to go as regards certain men’s attitudes towards women?

Yes indeed.

Really I don't understand the mentality of powerful men, who think they are above laws, and can treat women as chattels.

The male psyche is an opaque mystery!

Unfotunately, lots of people (men) don't realize the value of women.

Lucy: There is still a long way to go.

Caroline: It certainly is

Cas: I don't understand how this happens. Surely every mother should teach her son respect for women?
