Feminism

Hot topic, always. I was just reading The Age online about this very subject, the article “Misogyny war has no winner” reads, “JOHN Howard had his history and culture wars. Now Julia Gillard has the gender war. Or the ”misogyny wars” as the extraordinary, bitter, unedifying clash is being dubbed.
Although the fighting has been building, this week’s intensity was a shock. The government operates on the basis that Tony Abbott’s weak point is his ”woman problem”, which shows in polling. Many female voters find his style excessively aggressive and some of his attitudes (such as on abortion) unacceptable.” WOW. So it still happens openly in politics and behind closed doors. Are we ever going to win or change, as a society? Most industries are dominated by men as leaders, except in nursing and teaching, for some strange reason? I find there are also many more male playwrights and directors, why is that? Oh well, I will keep on doing what I do and challenge anyone on the notion, that women are just as creative and able. At least in the 21st century, we have freedom of speech in the western world, right?
