Quick bits & pieces

The pay equity discussion continues, with the Prime Minister saying there shouldn't be pay discrimination on the basis of pay and he's unaware of any evidence that there is, despite all the evidence that there is.

Hannah Tamaki has been disqualified from running for the leadership of the Maori Women's Welfare League.  More at Maui Street on this.

I did an interview for an article on feminism that was in the Herald on Sunday on the weekend but it isn't online yet.  They also talked to other online feministy types Alana and Coley.

Lots of discussion about the issue of bus drivers turning away women in burqa.  

There's a new (historic) rape complaint being laid against Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

NB: I've put "(historic)" not to denigrate at all the rape complaint - historic ones are just as valid as any other imho. Just to indicate it is an allegation about something that pre-dates the charge he is currently facing.
