Welcome to another fabulous Monday feminausts! The bad news is that while MsElouise is in charge of putting this round-up together, actually IsBambi did all the work so my oft-sited promise of being a better webmistress after I got my new computer is a bit of a failure so far. The good news is however that next Welcome to Monday will be brought to you on a PUBLIC HOLIDAY!!!! YEAH!!! I will (hopefully) be dancing my little booty off at Rainbow Serpent festival, as long as they can get their permit together in time. How will you be spending your Invasion Day/Hottest 100 Count Down Day/Indian Independence Day Holiday???
Anyway, on to the linkity links. Please enjoy and comment/add/write something in response to anything you’re particularly tickled/annoyed/inflamed by and don’t shoot the messenger xxxxx

Sarah Taylor is set to make history if negotiations go according to plan and she walks onfield with the Sussex County’s mens team… this will be a truly momentous moment in the history of women in sport, the day that a mens team decide they don’t have to be scared to open the doors to people of potentially any gender!
On a sadder note, according to this med-student, things really haven’t changed at all.
Message to women: the workplace is not like the schoolroom. While women may be excelling in academics they’re still not managing to make it in the corporate world.
Last Monday we linked to a couple of articles being published by the Guardian and Observer about some trans-related stuff… to put it really lightly. This week we have a bit of a response/think/chat from the lovely Idealogically Impure.
Across the Seas
And the rest…
The argument for stepping in. Why active bystanders are essential.
