Courts must stop judging women who kill their babies as morally ‘good’ or ‘bad’

Our thanks to Chloe for pointing us to an appalling article written by two female sociologists at the University of Essex. Ominously, it starts:

Despite over 30 years of feminist research…

It could more accurately have started:

Despite over 30 years of advocacy research carried out by taxpayer-funded gender ideologues…

The following extract should give you a flavour of the piece:

Hannah personified a “bad” woman – unmotherly and promiscuous. Rather than acknowledging her vulnerability and considering the very difficult situation Hannah faced being pregnant, the court condemned her. Hannah was sentenced to 26 weeks in jail, suspended for two years.

Hannah was ‘condemned’ by the court to… er… no punishment. Why, those heartless patriarchs!

It need hardly be said that the sociologists aren’t putting forward the argument that courts must stop judging people who kill their babies as morally ‘good’ or ‘bad’. That would be totally the wrong sort of gender equality.

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.
