Tiny, tiny steps

femsignTake your victories where you can: Wimbledon will equalize prizes for men and women (after years of advocacy from Billie Jean King and more recently by Venus Williams). Apparently they were the last of the Grand Slams to recognize that the women's game has been as much, if not more, of a draw as the men's in recent years and deserves equal compensation.

There's still plenty of work to be done in other arenas, but let's celebrate those blows for sanity where we can.
