Last week, Alex Salmond, First Minister of Scotland, announced that he will be sending a junior minister to the British Open, a prestigious golf tournament,  instead of attending it himself. He’s an avid golfer and is not forgoing the event out of disinterest. Rather on a matter of principle: the club hosting the event does not admit women as members. In about a month, the tournament will be held at Muirfield, a privately-owend club that is run by the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, which only allows male members. Salmond feels the male-only membership rule of the club sends the message that women are “second-class citizens” and that Muirfield should have been made to change its membership rules before it was considered for the honor of hosting the tournament. Alas, discrimination against women in golf is nothing new. The Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, just admitted its first female members last year after a long, long time of feminists protesting this injustice. For some reason, golf clubs have gotten away with not admitting women for an unreasonable amount of time. What’s up with that?!  [Telegraph UK] [Photo of a woman golfing via Shutterstock]
