Sustainable Future Time for Australian Politicians to think ahead.

This year's meeting of Climate Action and the UN Environment Programme is happening in Paris in early December.

French Minister, Segolene Royale has said "We've won the battle of ideas, we now must win the battle for action"

Let's hope the Australian government might be shamed into creating more sustainable policies. Australia currently ranks 52 of all OECD countries, below Turkey and Greece, when we live in a country with so many possibilities for green energy.

Australian women marrying foreigners pre 1948 - loss of citizenship!

29 September 2015

I was shocked to read that it's only been since 1948 that an Australian woman didn't automatically lose her Australian citizenship when marrying a foreign national. The thinking obviously was that the woman would become a citizen of her husband's country. This often did not happen, especially after the turmoil of the first world war, with the result the Australian woman would become stateless. 

Yes, Australian women got the vote at Federation, but it clearly did not make them equal citizens.
