Bestseller: Novelist Marian Keyes says novels written by men are automatically given more weight than those by women

Marian Keyes is in a passion. Not because of any one man in particular - on the contrary, she feels sorry for the expectations loaded on to men as a group.

But what's really firing her up is the male-imposed system which privileges men - otherwise known as the patriarchy.

And reports of its death are greatly exaggerated. Sexism continues to be an everyday problem, but Keyes has an all-inclusive take on it.
