    I think it's absolutely extraordinary that the Association des Femmes
    Journalistes should be awarding a prize for female photojournalists! I
    never heard anything like it in my life! How utterly unprecedented!

    The fact an association of female journalists exists is itself an
    affront.
    How about an association of male journalists, or white journalists?
    Do they make
    as much sense?

    Interesting that you chose the word "inferior". Wonder why you jumped to
    that assumption...

  5. Because the ONLY exercise he seems to get is "leaping to unwarranted
    conclusions"...

    This article from the 2007 Entry Rules is interesting.

    Article 5 - Application conditions

    The conditions are as follows :

    - applicants must be female

    - applicants must have completed at least one photo-reportage (published or
    unpublished)

    - applicants must be professional photojournalists

    - applicants must be able to write and speak in French or English

    No, because they are not groups for whom entry into that profession (or
    indeed other professions) has been historically an issue, nor are they a
    minority group which might feel the need to establish an association for
    mutual support and other reasons, nor are they a special interest group
    which might have yet other reasons for wanting to establish such an
    association.

    Natural conclusion, given examples from every other discipline where
    segregation of the sexes is done.

    So in the country where the prize is issued, when where women not
    permitted to be journalists or photographers, how long ago?

    If you had any women in your life, you'd know they are the superior species.

    That's why the rest of us worship them.

    RichA has had many women in his life, but they all sprang leaks because
    they were all made from inferior plastic!

    Don't waste your time with RichA. He has his ideas, and no amount of
    truth or facts will change them.

    Now if that's not the pot calling the kettle black...or maybe the pot
    calling the sterling silver tea service black...

    : Why else segregate an award like some sporting event?

    Oh, come on, Rich. The contest is *sponsored* by an organization of female
    journalists. You could as fairly argue that by supporting it, Canon is
    unreasonably *favoring* women vs men.

    This time you *are* trolling. Back off.

    Why don't you try to start one? Maybe you can persuade a few people to join.

    If you want to ride this train of thought a little longer, Canon (and
    The Association des Femmes Journalistes) must also deem people who
    only speak French or English are somehow inferior to the people speak
    a different language.



    Shiny side out, Rich. Shiny side out.

    Gosh Rich, I dunno. Perhaps because women are under-represented in
    photojournalism, & Canon wish to encourage particpation by women?
