Ladies, if you would like to nominate a person to be an Honorary Woman, please  send that lucky chap’s name to I look forward to compiling a glorious and rousing roster!


On my walk across the Star Mountains of Papua New Guinea with Sali, the son of the Telefomin Big Man, and Bikki, the Atbalman warrior, as my guides and companions, we trekked

through vast areas where tribes were at war.

I hired “a guard for the body.”

A second guard for the body was hired to guard the first guard for the body. Both guards for the body carried bows and arrows. There was, however, a problem. Neither guard for the body would agree to guard the body of a woman (i.e., me).

Sali solved the dilemma by telling the two guards of the body that I had been “proclaimed an honorary man.”

It worked. And because it happens that I like certain chaps—I am now

proclaiming the following men to be  . . . .
