@crazyjane13's tweet struck a chord.  I keep thinking about it. It makes me smile.

No.1 daughter: 'Can a woman be PM?' Me: 'Let me explain a little thing called feminism, honey.' #spill

I don't know why, but I feel this _is_ somehow more important, deep down, than it seems. If a young girl can still ask that question, then yes, this is significant. And if young girls everywhere are now more likely to believe they can do anything, then yes, this means something.

I don't quite know what that something is. But it's there. I can feel it.
