In response to The Laura Perrins Interview: Feminism has starved men of sex, says Dr Catherine Hakim, english_pensioner wrote:
Although the feminists make a lot of noise, I have grave doubts as to whether they are representative of more than a small percentage of the female population. Certainly, I’ve never met any of these die-hard feminists among my friends or my daughters’ friends. Most seem to feel that feminism has done its job, women now get equal pay, job opportunities and most of the things that early feminists campaigned for.
I’m glad that I’m not the only person to hold the view that we will never have equality of numbers in jobs because women make different lifestyle choices. Both my daughters are well qualified (one has a doctorate) and could hold down high level jobs, but they prefer not to do so and have chosen stress-free rather mundane part-time work. The net result is that many women in senior jobs are not up to the work, but have simply been appointed as part of the ‘numbers game’, which, of course, ‘proves’ to men that they are superior!
