      • “We are all bad feminists, really” (Musings of an Inappropriate Woman)
      • Kelly Vincent MLC Maiden Speech (Dignity for Disability) “Perhaps what I have just said will give you a little insight into why I am set back a little when people try to suggest that Dignity for Disability is a ‘single issue’ party– because disability knows no boundaries. It crosses transport, education, social inclusion, access, and discrimination, for a start.”

          The Canadian Conservative Prime Minister expelled a member of parliament and Minister of State for the Status of Women, Helena Guergis, from cabinet and the Conservative caucus and from running again for the Conservative party in the riding where she lives. However, the allegations about her conduct were never disclosed to her, but they may have everything to do with her husband, a former member of parliament, and his actions.

But with limited financial, staff, and educational resources, sometimes we seem to come up against a wall. How can we make our programs welcoming and beneficial for everyone?And a round-up of some interesting poverty and development related posts from the last week or so.Have a good week!
