I have a little daughter who always counts the number of girl superheros on telly. Unfortunately, female action heros are still outnumbered in children's cartoons however in real life this is happily not the case.
As a scientist who has followed developments on global warming for nearly 30 years I am dismayed at the number of trees and flowers blossoming as the Christmas lights go up. Nature is confused and it is an indicator of just how warm the world has become.
Women are also the main educators, in schools, colleges and homes so children can learn that equality not only matters but it is to be expected as the norm from today. Now more than ever is the time to educate and then to organise so we are not just agitated.
