A Feminist Related Random Musing...Or Woreva...

Ok. this is not a real post (i've been saying that forever, abi?) But i just came about this...From Mary Poppins...It didn't make any sense at the time cos we basically mumbled through the lyrics, but a few minutes ago, i came upon it...Audio and Lyrics...and i sang along...and i wondered...
Jes' tell me what you think...


Sister Suffragette

We're clearly soldiers in petticoats
And dauntless crusaders for woman's votes
Though we adore men individually
We agree that as a group they're rather stupid!

Cast off the shackles of yesterday!
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray!
Our daughters' daughters will adore us
And they'll sign in grateful chorus
"Well done, Sister Suffragette!"

From Kensington to Billingsgate
(Dare I add other locations...like Beijing?)
One hears the restless cries!
From ev'ry corner of the land:
"Womankind, arise!"
Political equality and equal rights with men!

Take heart! For Missus Pankhurst has been clapped in irons again!

No more the meek and mild subservients we!
We're fighting for our rights, militantly!
Never you fear!

So, cast off the shackles of yesterday!
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray!
Our daughters' daughters will adore us
And they'll sign in grateful chorus

"Well done! Well done!
Well done Sister Suffragette!"


 Is this what women really want?  D'you think they (Our daughters) would really? I'm Just musing and i thought i'd ask...

The old question...

Maybe not equality but a whole lot of respect! Back then it was worse...Now, women have earned a lot...

I love the line about adoring men individually but thinking they are quite dense as a group. PREACH SISTER!!! LOL
