Reasons behind feminism have been lost

Re: Feminism gone too far in Canada (Comment, March 4)

I just wanted to say what an amazing well-put column you wrote in the News on Friday.

It’s funny because we have been hearing a lot about feminism lately and how some people say they are feminists, but get criticised that they really, in fact, aren’t and so on.

It’s like feminists have lost the whole reasoning behind what they were once so passionate about.

I believe that life today is so equal between males and females. The sad part is that when a woman chooses to be a housewife they always get shunned – and 90 per cent of the shunning comes from a feminist!

Thanks for hopefully opening some people’s eyes, but I have a feeling you will get a few nasty letters from some feminists.
