High time we called a halt to navel-gazing feminism
Question: If you are not a feminist in 2015, what does that make you? A sexist pig? A misogynist? Or just someone so tired of seeing the F-word attached to everything from serious sexual violence to light-hearted wolf-whistling that you'd gladly torch your copy of 'The Female Eunuch', rip up 'The Second Sex' and stamp vigorously on 'How To Be A Woman'?
The word itself has become so toxic and so meaningless that it's time to put it to bed - as British news magazine 'The Spectator' has pointed out this week. In a cover story entitled 'The end of feminism', writer Emily Hill argues that the equality battle has already been won and that the current feminist movement - loud, militant and increasingly nit-picking - is defunct.
I hope Hill is right and that feminism's fourth wave is genuinely in its death throes.
