Discussion on BBC Radio Sussex / Surrey tomorrow: ‘Is feminism necessary anymore?’

I was pleased to receive an email earlier this afternoon from Jade Howard, producer of the BBC Radio Surrey / Sussex show, ‘The Danny Pike Show’. Tomorrow the show is being hosted by Sarah Gorrell, and the discussion will be around ‘whether Feminism is necessary anymore’. Now many people would argue that feminism was never necessary – and I wouldn’t disagree with them – but it’s certainly not necessary anymore. It’s been a poisonous scourge in Britain for 30+ years. Jade tracked me down after reading up on a couple of my books – The Glass Ceiling Delusion and Feminism: the ugly truth – and invited me to contribute to tomorrow’s discussion, which obviously I’m very happy to do. The show’s URL, to enable you to listen live:


I called Jade and we had a lengthy discussion. I told her about the Martha Kearney Radio 4 interview and my 75 seconds’ exposure on the last Sunday Morning Live. Perhaps it was my mention of the latter which led me to suggest Julie Bindel – the militant feminist journalist who writes for The Guardian, and appeared on the panel of Sunday Morning Live – as a possible ‘sparring partner’ on tomorrow’s programme. I also suggested that if Ms Bindel was unable or unwilling to join us, maybe one of the following would ?

– Harriet Harman MP

– Lynne Featherstone MP

– Cherie Blair

– Janet Street-Porter

The show is due to start about 10.00, I believe, and I expect to contribute some time after 10:10. Can’t wait, especially if I have the pleasure of sparring with Julie, Harriet, Lynne, Cherie or Janet!


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.
