it seems that everyone is into diversity at the moment. the police join in the act, with an increasing level of diversity in their new recruits. this is as a result of significant promotion within ethnic minority communities. the low numbers of women graduate is a concern though, with only 16 female graduates out of 76.

in case you missed it, i posted a photograph of roqaya al-gassra at the hand mirror yesterday. she's in the semi-finals tonight, i'm hoping she does well.

and i see the media has finally caught up with the discussion paper on changes to sexual violence legislation, which i wrote about last week. the reactions have focused on the suggestion that there be some requirement for the accused to show what steps he took to obtain consent. it's a significant change, but significant changes are required if we are going to improve the current situation.
