I'm filled with mixed emotions, but mostly happy that these women are bringing these issues to the fore. I am glad that the committee had women representatives, and I hate to see them leave, but if they are not able to make an impact then their participation becomes little more than window dressing. So bravo to these women for taking a stand.
I wonder if any of the men on the committee will take a similar stand? After all, this is a male problem - women suffer, but a male dominated culture is the problem.
