AN article about the failures of the Feminist movement to reach working class women by a New Journal reporter has kick-started a debate among MPs and across the media.
Pavan Amara interviewed 38 working class women from across the country for her report that was published on the F-Word website last week.
She found that working class women had effectively been excluded by a movement that was failing to reach the people who really needed it.
It was only when the class divide was crossed that the problem became evident.
Pavan is writing a blog for the New Statesman on the subject and her work was praised by Kerry McCarthy, the Labour MP for Bristol East, who Tweeted: “I agree with a lot of this.”
