I can’t recall when I last read such a profoundly ridiculous and uninformed piece as this in today’s Telegraph, and I thank Russell for pointing me to it. This should give you a flavour:
…we don’t need an International Men’s Day. Why? Because, in the UK (which is one of the world’s most gender-equal countries outside Scandinavia) women earn 24pc less than men on average.
Perhaps you don’t think that’s a big deal, but I do. It tells me that women still get a raw deal compared to men.
We can assume, I think, that someone this gloriously and unconsciously stupid regularly leaves the house wearing shoes which don’t match.
