Louise Mensch

Louise Mensch’s article yesterday hammered home a couple of vital points: that Tory feminism is holistic, and that Tory feminism is about equality of opportunity.

Tory feminism looks at women as people, not as a homogeneous sisterhood.  We’re not all the same. Women vary in their needs as much as men.  Yes, discrimination is collective, but that doesn’t mean our approach has to be.  In fact, Tory feminism challenges discrimination on the very grounds that it IS collective and the world is made up of individuals.
