Queens welcomed

You know that something has officially arrived when the British Royalty sanction it.  The leaders of the British Commonwealth (16 countries) have just unanimously approved the rights of daughters of British monarcha to be the next monarch.  This is kind of a formal recognition of what is obvious, that women are the equals of men in the law, even the laws of succession of the British throne.  

Given that three of the longest lived monarchs in England's and Britain's history are women:  Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth II, this doesn't seem too radical even for the Britain.
