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