Our public challenges of feminists (and their male collaborators)

We’re sometimes asked if we’ve ever had any substantive responses to the many public challenges we’ve issued to feminists, and their male collaborators. No, we haven’t, with the sole exception of one from Vera Baird, although we still haven’t received a response to the note we sent her in January 2014.

These people are utterly shameless in their contempt for truth while they pursue feminist agendas. Here’s a small selection from our challenges, in reverse chronological order:

Emma Ritch Executive Director, Engender (Scottish feminist campaigning organization)

Alun Michael Police and Crime Commissioner, South Wales

Leighton Andrews AM Minister for Public Services, National Assembly for Wales

Kate Smurthwaite Feminist ‘comedienne’

Vera Baird QC Police and Crime Commissioner for Northumbria (second challenge)

Gloria de Piero MP Shadow Minister for Women & Equalities

Laura Bates Whine merchant (second challenge)

Mark Carney Governor, Bank of England

Theresa May MP Home Secretary

Laura Bates Whine merchant

[Note added 27.9.14: the evidence base behind our assertion that Laura Bates was lying – a lie she brazenly repeated in September 2014 in a BBC debate – is here.]
