I am the queen of the castle and …

Wow.  British Prime Minister David Cameron has started the process of changing British law to allow for royal daughters to have

the same right to ascend to the throne as their brothers. This is great but I wonder why now? I noticed that although the Queen has never suggested a law change, she is not opposing it today. In fact it appears that the only reason the 300-year old law has not be challenged is because it was too complicated. This is just one more example of a law that clearly discriminates yet unless challenged (through a lot of work and money) will stay in place.  This is why we need to give money to organisations like LEAF and other lawyers who challenge our laws through courts and debates. We can’t wait for a forward thinking Prime Minister to make everything fair.
