Is Feminism Middle Class & Elitist? Yes, says Alison Wolf

Posted on January 29th, 2015 by

I heard an interview with Baroness Wolf on a BBC radio news programme recently, when I thought I heard her say that feminism today was doing nothing for the majority of women. My attention was piqued and, I have to admit, my dander was up. As a working class girl who discovered feminism at age 14 and embraced it wholeheartedly, I was horrified by the suggestion that I had become part of an elite, doing little for true equality and

A Final Farewell to Page Three? Sadly no…

Posted on January 22nd, 2015 by

This week for one brief moment it looked like the notorious page three of the Sun newspaper (young women featured in provocative poses with bare bosoms on page three of an allegedly family newspaper) had really gone for good. However, it transpired midweek that it was just a jolly jape/PR stunt to fool those humourless feminists (read Kathy Kette’s interview, no lack of humour in that feminist!) Reports of Page Three’s death were premature. No real surprises there, although the

Julien Blanc, Did We Give Him Too Much Publicity?

Posted on November 25th, 2014 by

I did a BBC radio interview the other morning with BBC London. It’s a serious talk show with Penny Smith and Paul Ross; they were debating the merits or otherwise of Julien Blanc being denied entry to the UK. My view was that we were right to ban him. There was precious little time to air the arguments one way or the other on live radio, but for what it’s worth here are my thoughts: I am sympathetic to the

Women Are Choosing To be Paid Less?

Posted on November 4th, 2014 by

I had to reword this post a few times as my anger was getting the better of me. Read on and it’ll become obvious why. New figures about the gender pay gap have been released which show that the gap in the UK has widened for the first time in 5 years. That is, women are getting paid less than ever before than men for similar jobs; the pay gap is 15.7% and in the finance and business management sectors
