No diversity in women’s day article Letter to the editor

I love reading the Rat Creek Press. In general, I find the paper to be inclusive and community-minded.

I want to bring to your attention an omission in the March 2016 edition. The article “Celebrating Women” includes a timeline on women’s right to vote. I was dismayed to see that this timeline does not inform readers that Aboriginal women did not have the right to vote until 1960.

I also noticed that the overwhelming majority of the trailblazers are white women.

I was disappointed by the racial bias in this piece. International Women’s Day is for all women and this article did not communicate that.
