Quote (taken from The Observer)...

"And I've never really felt like I'm a woman struggling in a man's world. Oh, I know there are fewer women comics, and I think there'll continue to be an inherent sexism in many industries, comedy being one, just because things do take a while to evolve. Things are changing, but it's going to take time. I accept this, rather than getting angry about it.

"I mean, if a female pilot ? I've got a dreadful fear of flying ? came over the intercom, I'm afraid my reaction would be what you'd describe, if heard from a man, as sexist piggery. But I'd be: gosh, right, hmm. I wonder if this is her first trip. I'd just prefer a male voice."

I have felt so annoyed by this all day.
