Augusta... Somewhat curious story in the Washington Times on Martha Burk, the National Council of Women's Organizations, and her sally to force Augusta golf club to admit women. I think Burk is way off base, as I've said before, and no one will be more thrilled than me if she's defeated (though some TV broadcast somewhere said Tiger Woods just predicted it'll have a female member within a year). But the main point of the story seems to be that NCWO now has a much higher public profile than it did before. Well, no kidding. And if the Washington Times is trying to portray this as uniquely vile, lotsa luck. Everybody with political or cultural goals is trying to boost their own visibility. Does quoting Daniel Pipes have anything to do with trying to boost PostWatch's visibility? Gee, let me think.

There are two items near the end that I find noteworthy:

Ms. Hartmann said that in particular the Augusta fight has given the NCWO "traction" on two key issues: Title IX and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. President Bush called a U.S. Department of Education panel to review the 30-year-old Title IX statute. Changes could come next year. The majority of women's groups vehemently oppose any revisions to Title IX. The convention, meanwhile, has developed an international bill of rights for women that the NCWO and other groups seek to have formally ratified by the United States....

Here are two bad things: Not ending the gender-quota regime imposed by current Title IX enforcement, and starting U.N. meddling in the domestic arrangements of Americans under the banner of CEDAW.
