Tiny, little baby steps

So, in the last week and a half FIFA has worked out that wearing a scarf while playing football won’t cause you to instantly die and the Kingdom s of Saudi Arabia and Brunei and Qatar have all entered women athletes in this year’s summer Olympics.

That it will be difficult for these ground breaking women goes, sadly, almost without saying. That this is, in many ways (as the title says), tiny, little baby steps is also clear. But forward is forward I reckon.

That means, assuming all the athletes show up, that there are now no countries to have never sent women to the games.
