Comments on: London 2012 – a chance to nurture strong female role models http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/2009/03/06/london-2012-a-chance-to-nurture-strong-female-role-models/ Wed, 16 Nov 2016 01:37:11 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: nick http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/2009/03/06/london-2012-a-chance-to-nurture-strong-female-role-models/comment-page-1/#comment-2406 Thu, 12 Mar 2009 12:52:04 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/?p=559#comment-2406 But the problem with that Jeanne is that they would only be competing against other women. There is still then only one winner in each event and therefore only 1 role model to focus on, just as before. It therfore highlights nothing.

It is about the fact that successful athletes become role models by default. It suggests that women should be encouraged to participate in a wider range of sporting events. Nothing wrong with that!

1. Totally misled the public over the cost of the Olympics and we are now paying 3 times as much as first estimated by Tessa.
2. Demoted from Secretary of State by GB for being a bit erm, crap at the job.
3.Inextricably linked to David Mills. There is no way she can not have known what he was up to.
4. Voted against a transparent Parliament.
5. Voted for Iraq War.
6. Still uses her first husbands surname.

Yes, all in all both a fantastic example of a female role model and judge of other female role models.

Not by setting out to become one. And _certainly_ not by having a politician on the sidelines nominating one!
