Today, I have a special guest post from Dr Amanda Mergler, co-founder of Girls Uniform Agenda. Girls Uniform Agenda campaigns for young girls to have the right to a choice of uniform, including pants, like boys have.

My husband and I share the domestic workload pretty well. Sometimes, he shoulders a lot more of the work than I do- the joys of living with a shift worker who might be home but is in no fit state to hang out washing or operate machinery.

Compared to some I’ve met, he does an awful lot of the unpaid work that many men still expect of their female partners. Not too shabby in the equitable household stakes at all. But still, there are some small things I feel like I’m always left with.

You might chase it quietly, wanting the love and affection that comes with it in a committed relationship. Perhaps you will pursue it with an appetite, wanting to experience all the variety that life can offer you in this area. You might hold out for that special someone or you might have two dozen someones come into your life at various times, all special in their own way.
