The 'bonkers' situation in which women lose out on their pensions because they stayed at home rearing their families is down to "downright misogyny of the State", according to Ann Cahill in her contribution to the Budget debate (Irish Independent, October 12).

It is hard to disagree with her.

The way to confront this misogyny, however, is in women's own hands the next time they are in a polling booth with a blunt pencil and a ballot paper.
