Red Glass

Reuters has an article up on the inability of women to penetrate the upper echelons of the Chinese Communist Party. Mao Zedong was, publicly at least, supportive of women's equality, but apparently the message never broke through to the Chinese communist culture. Sixty years after the revolution, women are still only 20% of the Chinese parliament.

Hey! I know another country that has only 20% female representation in its parliament!

It's nice to know that we're keeping up with the Jones on women's rights. Or keeping down, as the case may be.
