Suzanne Moore gets equality wrong, as usual

Missive to the Guardian after one of their clueless feministas gets it wrong again

Sirs,

Suzanne Moore (G2, 5 Sept.) inadvertently sums up nicely the difference between equality and feminism with her statement about men: “They can walk along­side us, just not ahead and take charge”.

She defines equality as men slowing their pace down to match that of women. Not a terribly high opinion of women’s capabilities, is it? So much for progress!

No, equality is all about making sure women can have the same opportunities as men – walk at the fastest pace, if you like – not about holding men back.

Women will never compete fairly with men if they insist on having men shot in one foot first.
