Anti-women discrimination in angling


Sexism, cartoon

This blog has written before about an angling club, called De Hoop, in Woudrichem, the Netherlands, which does not allow women to join.

Ms Nanda van der Meer used to angle before she moved to Woudrichem. What I did not explain last time that in the Netherlands one can only angle legally if one is a member of the local angling club. So, the anti-women discrimination means for Ms Van der Meer not only that she cannot join De Hoop; it means she cannot angle at all.

For some mysterious reason, at the moment videos are not working on my blog. I hope this problem will besolved. Then, I will add a video to this blog post.

UPDATE: meanwhile, I have tried whether pictures work. They do.
