Fem­i­nists a silent ma­jor­ity

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

SO, Ken McEl­lig­ott is an­other one who thinks that fem­i­nists are to blame for all the woes of the world ( TB, March 14). If only we were so pow­er­ful. If only politi­cians and other com­mu­nity lead­ers gave a toss about what we think.

Many of us agree with you, Ken, about the ap­palling per­sonal at­tacks that pass for po­lit­i­cal de­bate in this coun­try, but we won’t cop the blame for a sit­u­a­tion that politi­cians past and present, in­clud­ing your­self, cre­ated. Fem­i­nists con­tinue to speak, write and demon­strate in sup­port of a fair go for our Prime Min­is­ter and Premier be­cause they are women we are im­mensely proud of, but our words are ig­nored.

If you want to hear from us, Ken, then show a bit of in­ter­est in what we say. Don’t just use us when you need some­one to blame. BETTY McLEL­LAN,

Rail­way Es­tate.
