Afghan women are 200 times more likely to die in childbirth than to be killed by a bomb or bullet - new report by Ms. Magazine. Hoping this doesn't get left off the agenda at the Bonn Conference.

Jo Biden tells Turkey that countries pursuing internet censorship are pursuing a dead end, and that such censorship stifles innovation. Can Biden please return to the US via Canberra to tell Conroy, Gillard et al?

This /really/ grinds my gears. It just doesn't seem so difficult- employ someone who has some comprehension of the concepts they're dealing with and involve in /some/ way in the legislative process.

This is akin to burning all locksmiths to make our houses more secure.

A beautifully written piece - let us not fall into the same traps as Kristof and others in thinking the rest of the world must be rescued.

A rather sharp summary of barriers to women enjoying the fabulous cricket at the MCG (and in general)

A brilliant piece by Leslie Cannold on the problems democracy, policy development and the media are facing/creating/sustaining in Australia at the moment. Finally, an article which moves beyond apportioning blame and towards a consideration of the causes and analysis of the effects. A considered and succinct call for evidence based policy, among other things.
Good reason to worry about our democracy
