Echidne Goes All Cheerful And Optimistic!

I know that comes as a shock. I'm usually the goddess of gloom. But if I try really really hard I can even report on good tidings for women! And if not me, then other people.

For instance, Kathleen Sweeney, author of Maiden USA: Girl Icons Come of Age, listed recently several good and important changes which should make us cheerful. I'm mentioning only two of them here:

1. Girls are doing well in education wherever they are allowed to excel.

2. Millennial girls are "gaining technological fluency in ways that are eclipsing the
traditional gender divide in these areas

That wasn't too hard, was it?
