1. 'Girlification' article from the Manchester Guardian 
From: Gerrit Verschuur [Verschuuraol.com] 
 
According to author Polly Toynbee, whose article appeared in The Guardian 
on Tuesday April 15 2008, 'Girlification' is destroying all the hope we felt 
in 1968. Women are still paying the motherhood penalty at work, but the 
damage starts in infancy, with a poisonous pink assault. 
 
This article makes many of the points raised in the weekly CSWA articles in= 
 a somewhat broader context worth considering.
