I like this idea a lot for loads of reasons, main one being it says 'this is not a big deal' about a gender situation people won't come across often. What do people think?
I am also well up for commiting to zero all-male bills organised by us for the whole month. So far this looks likely whether we commit to it or not, which doesn't surprise me as the only all-male bills I've seen at Forest in the last year have been wholly outside jobs.
I like this too, and the wider commitment for August (to be clear though: when I said male-only bills are commonplace, I didn't mean in Forest).
