This is another sickly sweet vomit provoking offering from the Daily Noise ({short description of image}see previous efforts).

Whilst apparently promoting Wimmin's Rights and Feminism they descend to the level of publishing pics of this nature!

Women having to cook and then carry the food on their heads to the men supposedly toiling in the fields. (The reason should be obvious from the original caption. Had to do with the presence of politicians..they like girls!)

We used to do this sort of thing...many years ago...at school concerts!
