Men, know your place! Harriet Harman doesn’t want to hear you

In a move which has attracted surprisingly little media attention, Harriet Harman has pursued the idea of a women-only meeting, or ‘uprising’, called ‘What Women Want’ at Labour Party conference.

At the meeting, hosted by Harriet Harman MP and Yvette Cooper MP, men will be excluded, not allowed in, left outside the door. Why? Because they are men. There will be one exception, Ed Miliband, leader of the Labour Party, will be allowed in because he is, according to a Labour spokesman, “an honorary woman”.

This is an outrage. Can you imagine a meeting to which only men are invited and Harriet Harman is called an ‘honorary man’?

It makes all those involved look out-of-touch, but more importantly, it does untold damage to the cause of equality for women.  Why should men support equality for women if they are treated in this way?

Where the suffragettes quite rightly called for voting equality with men, the feminist movement has become so radicalised that it excludes men, and isn’t interested in what they have to say.

It is time for those who believe in equality in the Labour Party to perform an ‘uprising’ of their own and call for true equality, where gender isn’t important and all voices are equal.

    There are many places where women are excluded in this country (GOLF CLUBS etc). Maybe it would do men good to know how it feels.

    By the way, I am a feminist. We do not exclude men, my husband is a feminist and attended the Feminism in London Conference. We are interested in what men have to say and are defintely not radicalised.

    If you are going to comment on feminism please do not be so generalising, do not believe everything you have read in the press.

      what do golf clubs have to do with the labour party?! If the labour party is promoting equality it shouldn’t have meeting were men are excluded. It clearly is the radicalisation of feminism that can be seen in your words: “There are many places where women are excluded in this country (GOLF CLUBS etc). Maybe it would do men good to know how it feels.” So, because women are allegedly excluded from some clubs (any examples?) the same should be done to men in a completely different organization (the labour party) which is supposed to promote equality. Two wrongs don’t make a right.
