Sex and Power

House of Commons UK
As the 4th wave of feminism slowly simmers to the boil, I hope it doesn’t dilute its power by aiming at too many targets.

Perhaps the first target should be the treasured seat of real power: Parliament, where women are not fairly represented in the place where their interests are decided. Currently, there are 5 male MPs to every female MP.

Because voluntary methods haven’t worked in nearly 50 years, until we have equal sex representation, perhaps we need to switch to a compulsory new system of female-only candidates on the selection lists of the most powerful parties: Labour and Conservative.

Then perhaps we could get affordable, completely tax-deductible child care.
