Sexism in politics: This was the subject of a discussion I had last week on BBC Radio 4’s PM programme. I was discussing the possibility of a feminist political party, with Guardian journalist Suzanne Moore who had posed the question in the first place.
Moore said that while we have a vibrant feminist movement today, this isn’t reflected in any political structure.
It is true that we have a strong feminist movement in this country which we need to tap into more. However, as I said during the interview I stop short at embracing the idea of a feminist political party because the only way to make any significant change is through the political process.
You can listen to the interview, and my argument, with myself and Suzanne Moore here.
