This weekend I missed a great march in London as part of Fawcett Society’s ‘Don’t Turn Back Time’ campaign.
The idea behind it:
“On average, women earn less, own less, and are more likely to work and retire in poverty than men. The government’s approach to cutting the deficit is turning back time on women’s equality. This can’t go on.
On November 19th, join us on the ‘DON’T turn back time’ March in London or host your own ‘DON’T turn back time’ tea party to help us tell David Cameron:“DON’T TURN BACK TIME ON WOMEN’S EQUALITY!””
Because I only heard about it last minute, I didn’t join the march and I didn’t have time to prepare anything for a Tea Party.
No problem… I had an idea, which I entitled: ‘Be brave, eat watercress cake and sign my petition’
When I went home for my sister in law’s birthday, she had ordered a very special cake for her party, Watercress Cake. Reluctant at first, considering that watercress is a bit sour and doesn’t sound like the kind of thing one would want to put in a cake, I decided that I should at least try it because I am brave.
I am glad I did because this is a rather cool cake with lots of potential. Very, very delicious.
So I decided to bake it and bring it to work, and for each person who would try a slice of cake, I only asked that they would sign the petition, so that I could send as many signatures as possible to Fawcett Society.
And now, I present you my photo recipe/journey to a greener you:
