Time to take on men-only clubs

Every year I watch the media get excited about golf in Georgia and then I am reminded that women cannot be members of the Augusta National Golf Club.

It would be easy to judge the men of Georgia - and, indeed, the players - but we must look closer to home.

As a woman, I always imagine the men in men-only clubs to be either hiding out from household duties, avoiding the financial pain of a separation or divorce, or sharing their cache of pornography, all with their knuckles close to the ground.

But this is not the case. They walk among us and women everywhere should do more than sound our periodic objections: we should refuse to do business with them, or their organisations.
