A progress report: Tales on how much remains to be done

This is the third of our three Open Threads for this year's International Women's Day. In this one we ask that you reflect on your assessment of areas where a lot needs to be done to achieve greater equality and justice for women. This will tie in well with the theme of this year's International Women's Day, Equal Rights, equal opportunity: Progress for All. We prefer that you use actual anecdotes to illustrate your points.

There are no instructions for style or length, but we ask that you demonstrate in that story sufficient evidence of where this is happening, and maybe even supply a suggested solution. Try to place the stories in their context and to say what, if anything is being done to improve things.

Everyone's invited, playwrights, writers of fiction and non-fiction, raconteurs or people like you and me.
Let's start with Faith Oneya's Fresh Paint , which everyone must read. A story of a girl, and the fresh paint of coffins.
