Having worked in a top tier law firm, I am well aware of the woman who wants to be one of the men.
She wants to be seen as an equal, given the same opportunities and rewarded on her merits.
She even shakes hands like a bloke.
But in doing so, are we 'betraying our girlhood'?
Clementine Ford poses this question in a thought provoking article here.
I'm a girly girl, there's no doubt about it. Bows, pearls, ponytails, pink lippy and frills.
And I think it's fair to say my fellow bloggers are girly girls too.
But what's to say a girly girl can't kick goals in this big scary world of ours? Look at Quentin Bryce for example. She's the epitome of style and success. And she's a lady.
So let's embrace it, don't hide it, and be kind to our friends who feel the need to squash their penchant for pink.
They'll thank you when they discover the perfection of a ladylike cup of tea out of fine bone china (once they get over the rose print!).
