It’s amazing to see it publicly written, by a male of all things, what I’ve been saying for years, about the elephant in the room. We talk about racism, anti-semitism, Islamaphopia and homophobia and label it politically incorrect to use language that is derogatory, and back it up with legal action against those who discriminate in word or deed. But when it comes to women, it’s open season and anything goes.
Despite the denials, open and unchallenged mysogyny is alive and well not only on the internet but at the highest levels of government. Years ago, Virginia Slims, a cigarette made especially for women, had a slogan which was “ You’ve come a long way baby”. Truth is that when it comes to equality and challeging what is still a highly discriminating culture towards women, there’s still a long, long way to go.
