Quentin Letts: ‘Does Maria Miller, the prosaic plodder, deserve chivalry?’

Quentin Letts – one of only three ‘Winston’ award winners to date – has been justifiably critical in his newspaper articles of Maria Miller, a cabinet minister. So I found one of his articles, published yesterday, very revealing:


Let me summarise the key point. A (female) cabinet minister’s (female) special adviser responds to a leading journalist’s criticism of the cabinet minister by expecting the journalist to submit to the ‘chivalry’ card. It’s to his credit that Quentin Letts has responded as he has, by publicising the story.

What does the expectation of ‘chivalry’ towards poorly-performing female ministers say for the notion that David Cameron should appoint more women into his cabinet?


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.
