'We...believe women ought to be admitted to private clubs'

March 20, 2009

Here we go again. PINK magazine, a publication devoted to "equity and opportunity" for women, plans to be at the Masters next month to protest the fact that Augusta National Golf Club has no women members, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting.

"We're not going to be throwing ripe fruit or anything," PINK CEO Cynthia Good told the newspaper, "but we'll make our presence known. We absolutely believe women ought to be admitted to private clubs."

Good luck with that. It's unlikely that PINK will receive anywhere near the same amount of publicity that Martha Burk generated with her protest in 2003, when the Augusta National membership in particular and golf in general went about their business as usual.
