It's time to consign the word 'feminism' to dustbin of history

It is a constant source of irritation to me that women are still fighting the feminist battle. Surely feminism has run its course and the word should now be banished from the English language.

I was interested to see last week that Sweden is to distribute a copy of best-selling author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's book 'We Should All Be Feminists' to every 16-year-old student in the country.

It is hoped this works as a stepping-stone for a discussion about gender equality and feminism.
