Well worth a read. She's always right about everything, but she's especially right about this.

Yes, particularly her first point pertinent to our Men in a Van thread.

I'm making a mental note of 'piss-stained 50-year-old alcoholics? Always!'

Oh FFS with the onslaught of "Wotaboutthemenz" whines.


When 15 year old boy children are subjected to sexual harassment like this, then let's talk about the menz.

I don't know why I read the Guardian comments, I really shouldn't particularly late at night when I should be preparing for sleep.

Ooh I was going to post this too!yes it's an excellent article, and great that it's in a prominent position in a national newspaper.

I normally find her quite annoying but I really liked this article. It made me wonder if she might be among us!?

I dunno these feminists always complaining

We give you the vote and equal pay. And how do you thank us? By threatening to take our porn away Sad

Also a good article in the Independent today by Yasmin Alibhi-Brown.

Mariella Frostrup in the Guardian yesterday.

(Think it was linked on another thread but mayeb we could put all the Women's Day articles here?)

David51 · 07/03/2011 21:06

Mariella's piece is really powerful & beautifully written

I'd missed that Mariella article - astonishingly moving.

Mangan, not Mangam. Grrr.
