Whiny Feminists of the Month: Laura Bates (twice), Caroline Criado-Perez, Harriet Harman MP, Jo Swinson MP, Meg Hillier MP, Dr Heather Savigny…

A Voice for Men is the most-visited and most influential men’s human rights advocacy website in the world, and our piece on The Whine Club was published there. We’ve been delighted by the number and quality of comments the piece has attracted.

We invited nominations for our ‘Whiny Feminist of the Month’ awards, and were inundated with suggestions, as you’d expect. More than a few people have suggested we have a ‘Whiny Feminist of the Week’ award, but we’re too busy to add that to our list of things to do. Maybe one day.

The inaugural winner of the Whiny Feminist of the Month award, which leads to automatic membership of The Whine Club, was – quelle surprise – Laura Bates, the ‘brains’ behind The Everyday Sexism Project. We generally refer to it as The Everyday Whining Project. Her certificate is here.

Subsequent winners of the award are below, the list will be updated each month:

November 2013: Contributors to Mumsnet, here’s why. The award certificate.

December 2013: Julie Bentley Chief executive of Girlguiding UK

January 2014: Ellie Slee Blogger at the Huffington Post

  1. the next candidate should be Dr (sic) Alice Prochaska whining about rape culture at Oxford University….the fact that this gormless indoctrinated airhead is at Oxford in any capacity (letalone HEAD OF COLLEGE!?!) is a scandalous indictment of how academic standards at our top universities have been dragged into the gutter by these shameless women……why doesnt she go the whole way, ransack the libraries for the treasures of european enlightenment thought, pile them up in the quadrangle and just burn them……which is effectively what she is already doing with her poisonous orwellian gibberish….
