    Janice, one proof of feminism having gone off the rails, is a chat I had with an old school mate recently. (We are both OAPs and retired totally). …….. ”Don’t you wish you were young again, with all the possibilities that exist today with the girls ?” My own reply took a moment’s thought, but I said ”Yeh I shaw do wish I was young again, but not for today’s time and society. Give me my youth back in my days of the 1950s, and at age 7, walking home from school with our neighbours daughter that introduced me to the real pleasure of girls. It set me up for respect for girls, that today seems sadly lacking in young society. – Today’s youngsters are welcome to their time ! The pill and the lack of marriage, with the shame of abortion, all of which destroys the beauty of family with good order !

    This is a good article. I remember the days when I thought Feminism was a huge positive force for good. Long past now though. But I think this piece illustrates a political skill, sadly lacking today, where it is recognised that a once proud movement has morphed into something not very nice (to say the least). It is important to distinguish between the days of achievement and the days of decline. I read elsewhere critics are now rubbishing the whole history of feminism. This is the wrong attitude imho. It is like saying the anti-apartheid movement was wrong because of what the ANC have become today.
    A very sensible piece, Janice.

    Thankyou both. I’m glad you understand the difference of what feminism was meant to be. And what some young women experience now is not really freedom at all, just pressure
