120404 Maggie award presented to Charlotte Vere

For those who may not know about the estimable Ms Vere, herewith the start of the first chapter of my latest book Feminism: the ugly truth:

On the evening of 15 September 2011 two women were being interviewed by Gavin Esler on the BBC’s flagship television news programme Newsnight. One was the dour feminist Labour politician Angela Eagle (née Eaglet). She’d obviously chewed on a thick slice of lemon before the interview, to set her customary expression. The other was Charlotte Vere, a businesswoman and former prospective Parliamentary candidate for the Conservative party for Brighton Pavilion at the 2010 general election. The seat was unfortunately won by a green MP, Caroline Lucas, presumably green for the reason outlined in a chapter of this book, ‘Why are fat women fat?’

I cheered Ms Vere upon hearing her state the following in a piece recorded to camera before the interview:

‘I think feminism is a toxic, battle-hardened and arrogant philosophy which has been manipulated by those at the extremes of politics. Feminism has had its day. We need women to stand up and shout, “Feminism? Not in my name!” ’

At last, I thought, at long last… people are starting to get it!

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
