U.K. Survey: No "War on Women" Here Either
Victim feminism is on the run!
We see this in the rejection by many U.S. women of the Obama campaign’s condescending strategy to win our votes by convincing us that the GOP is waging a “War on Women.”
Now comes word from across the pond that independent UK women have also outgrown the '70s style feminism that portrayed women as victims of oppression:
One in seven would describe themselves as a feminist with many believing they have achieved equality with
men on issues like fair pay and skills….
In fact, almost a third (28 per cent) of British women describe the radical feminism of [Female Eunuch author Germaine] Greer as “too aggressive”
towards men and a quarter no longer view it as a positive label for women.
One in five say the concept of “Women’s Lib is old fashioned” and simply “not relevant” to their generation.
A further 17 per cent even claim feminism has gone too far, oppressing men and “losing sight of the natural roles of men and women”…
Netmums founder Siobhan Freegard said: “Modern women feel traditional feminism is no longer working for them as it’s aggressive, divisive and doesn’t take into account their personal circumstances.”
The story goes on to say that women should make up their own minds whether they want to attempt to climb the corporate ladder or stay home with children. More than two thirds said that restoring the prestige of motherhood is important, while under a third were concerned about the number of women in politics.
The views that came out in this survey are in marked contrast with the one expressed by liberal talking head Hilary Rosen, who said that stay-at-home mother of five boys Ann Romney had “never worked a day in her life.”
