Having three daughters will pound any ideas you might have had about unequal opportunities for women right out of you.
That said, I don't go as far as Liz Lemon, Tina Fey's character on '30 Rock', when she wonders why there aren't more female serial killers.
But seems to me (anecdotal evidence only, but still...) that one area which I think has up to now been generally (stereotypically?) considered a male bastion is slowly being equalized.
I'm talking about egregiously aggressive, stupidly dangerous driving.
It's been sneaking up on us for a while, but was highlighted today by what appeared to be a young-ish woman (I only caught a glimpse) driving a brown Pontiac minivan on Highway 25 north out of Milton, shortly after noon today.
She took to a left-turn-only lane just before a stoplight to pass me and a tanker truck, crossing a double yellow in the process - not that there is anything illegal per se about crossing a double yellow (you could look it up...).
This blatantly dangerous move got her to the intersection of Regional Road 5 a full two car lengths ahead of where she would otherwise have been.
North of there, she proceeded to pass several other cars, again in no-passing zones, so demarcated because of the presence of many driveways and entrances to various commercial operations (Chudleigh's Apple Farm, Glencairn Golf Club, etc.).
Then when the road expanded to two lanes northbound up the Escarpment, she rocketted up the highway at what must have been 30 or 40 klicks over the 80 km/h limit and disappeared towards Acton.
Was she late for a job interview? Was there a sick baby in the car? A sale at The Hide House? (Whether it's 'worth the drive' or not, I'll leave to you...).
All I know is that if she had been stopped by a police officer - the road is patrolled very frequently - or, worse still, had a crash, the consequences would not have been trivial.
And, she would have got to where she was in such a hurry to get to a whole lot later than if she had just driven like a responsible, sane person.
I don't believe this is what Gloria Steinem et al had in mind...
