FEMINISM & FAMILY

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

Sir: I must take issue with Angela Elliott re “feminism & child rearing”. As a 70’s feminist I worked both before and after having a family but I was lucky to be able to stay home with my children when they were young and never thought this was incompatible with my feminist beliefs. Like many women of my generation I have always viewed feminism as a simple, (or not so simple) matter of “Liberty, Equality & Fraternity”. The struggle must still go on; (witness the reportage this week of an honour killing and blatant city misogyny); it is important as ever, but we do not hate men and these days not many of us wear dungarees.
