'Normal' in our society means male – women are written out of the story

Congratulating Andy Murray on his second tennis Olympic gold medal, Inverdale told him: “You’re the first person ever to win two Olympic tennis gold medals,” leaving Murray to point out: “Venus and Serena [Williams] have won about four each.”
Leaving women out of the story isn’t a simple slip up. It is a consequence of a world that tells us they just aren’t quite as important. That their achievements don’t really count. It means that even in 2016, some of us do still need reminding that women are people, too.
