There’s a lively debate on facebook over whether this article on David Willetts’s views is an April Fool’s Day joke. (Quite the statement on the state of political discourse, I think.)
Feminism has set back the cause of social mobility by decades, a senior minister has claimed.
Universities Minister David Willetts said feminist policies had inadvertently halted the improvement in the life chances of working-class men and widened the gap between rich and poor.
He said feminism was the ‘single biggest factor’ in the decline in social mobility since the 1960s, adding: ‘Feminism has trumped egalitarianism.’
