Rhiannon Spear: Feminism is as important for men as it is for women - please listen
CommonSpace columnist Rhiannon Spear says that when men are accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like oppression
THIS is something I have been thinking about a great deal recently. I believe if we really understood this we would see a massive breakthrough in achieving true equality.
A problem I am frequently facing at the moment is seemingly liberal men who are adamantly opposed to positive discrimination for women. Because when you are accustomed to the privileges of patriarchy, equality can feel a lot like oppression.
