Who will stand up to this feminist abuse of power?

Graced with intellect and social status, feminists of privileged background are exploiting the simplistic gender power dichotomy to advance their careers. They show little concern for the genuinely powerless, such as the girls raped by mainly Pakistani grooming gangs, or the homeless men they pass outside their office block.

Or if the alleged misdemeanour was simply an overfriendly remark blown out of proportion? Mr Bradby should consider how he would feel if placed in the line of fire himself. Malicious allegations could be made and organisations, particularly since the Weinstein scandal, automatically suspend the accused. Would one, in that situation, be enjoying one’s sense of power?
