I am a Feminist. There, I said it. I am a feminist and I am proud of it. No, I haven't lost my marbles and I am not going soft in the head. I believe that the world would be a better place with more women at the helm and as things stand, there are far too many men in positions of power.
That I belong to the male species is neither here nor there. If anything, it has given me a greater insight into how poorly women are treated by members of the opposite sex. It is amazing what one can find out as a paid-up member of the hairy inner circle.
Feminism has had a bad name since its inception all the way back in the mid nineteenth century. For a lot of people, the word 'feminist' conjures up negative images of angry, bra-less women, charging around from protest to protest, fiery eyes piercing anything resembling the male species.
