Christy Birmingham on the subject of Feminism and how a minority of women have given this worthy cause, a rather different public face. Even as a woman I find rampant male focussed tirades offensive and an insult to the thousands of pioneering women around the world who have paved the way across medicine, industry and education to provide me with my own path to success. Christy would like your views once you have read her excellent post of course… please leave your comments on her blog. thanks Sally
