Feminism’s pointless fight
WHY do feminists make fusses about nothing, such as the current persecution of a man in a lift who asked, jokingly, for someone to press the button for the ladies’ lingerie floor? It is because they long ago achieved their aims, but admitting it would mean they’d have to find something else to do.
Don’t take my word for it. The playwright David Edgar recounted last week that as far back as the 1970s, a feminist manual written by the militant Anna Coote ‘had to be quickly revised because so many of its demands had been won’. In fact, the Left won almost everything it wanted years ago. That is why we are in such a mess.
