Let female golfers become members of your club.

Why is this important?

It's 98 years since (some) women were allowed to vote in Britain, and 214 years since A Vindication of the Rights of Woman was published. Muirfield Golf Club needs to get up-to-date. Treating all human beings as equal is a mark of civilisation.

Reasons for signing

  • women can play golf - prehistoric to nit allow it
  • I've known some of the men who have made this decision at Muirfield. Their relationship to the world really is infantile, fearful and reactionary. They preserve a 'last bastion' mentality of men who want to dominate, subjugate, and deny equality. They want their 'little boys' bolthole'. Time to let some light in. Any woman who becomes a member will be either a wife of a member and so no threat to the status quo, or she will be patronized to the point of resigning. Be Strong!
  • Oh come off it, do I REALLY need to explain, it's 2016 !! :-)))
