Stories to tell.

Feminism personified……….

On the back of marches all around the world, the death of Mary Tyler Moore started me thinking today. For many of us she really did have it all.

Right to march……

Trumped…….

Let me start by saying this is just an observation piece, I am neither a Trumper or NO Trumper, I am just an a Aussie girl watching from afar. I have however been following the American Presidential Race and ultimate outcome very closely. It was also once  what happened on the opposite side of the world… Continue reading Trumped…….
