Meghann Foye, authoress, 38, facing firestorm of outrage for claiming women without children should be allowed a ‘ME-ternity’ leave to focus on their goals, bails on Good Morning America appearance at the last minute

Priceless. Hmm, does this story tell us anything we didn’t already know about gender-typical work centredness? And did the world-renowned sociologist Dr Catherine Hakim possibly have something to say on the subject in 2000?

On the most recent International Women’s Day – March something-or-other – I had the pleasure of appearing on Sky News with two women, talking on the topic, ‘Can you be a successful working Mum?’ Kay Burley, the presenter, along with a feminist guest, were both examples of the one in seven women who are work-centred, both seemingly incapable (in common with almost all such women) of understanding that six in seven women are different. The video is here (18:25). Ms Burley appeared a little startled when I described her presenting her personal experience as ‘pathetic’, I don’t know why.

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.

  • I’m sure Meghann would have also extolled the virtues of “meternity leave” for her male colleagues. Perhaps not, for who’d be producing the magazines?
    Though I just bet those bad men would not take time off to “find” themselves and just get on with the job they’re paid to do. Maybe beavering away for longer hours so Meghann can contentedly examine her navel meditating at the Buddhist bookshop.
