Sounds good. You would think they would also put this into effect in the US. We'll see. Thanks for the article, Cal.

I can't see this bill passing through congress. As happened the first time it came up, the conservatives will kill it again. Why would anyone ever think they care about women. Look at the war they're waging against women right here in the United States. The only time they "pretend" to care about women is when they want to use them as an excuse to get us into another war.

It's about time. Now pass it and put some teeth in the laws governing it. Oh and how about ensuring that it's being properly written and then administered?

Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Carey L. Biron. I doubt seriously the GOP will let this pass in the House.
