An excellent piece, prompted by yesterday’s ratification of the Istanbul Convention Bill in the House of Commons, passed by 138 votes to 1 (Philip Davies). The Bill now goes to the House of Lords for ratification, where it is certain of a similarly overwhelming vote.
A woeful article in The Independent is here. The writer of the piece – in which the existence of male victims of domestic violence are not recognized once, hence missing the point of Philip Davies’s actions yesterday – is an 18-year-old feminist, Yas Necati. From her blog:
Yas Necati is an eighteen year old activist who was born in, and is still being raised in, London. A passion for comic-books, feminism and changing the world means that she is, of course, a super-duper nerd! She’s SUPER proud to be a member of No More Page 3 HQ, fighting to end a long-outdated sexist institution, whilst having true “harmless fun” along the way.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
