It is as though feminism had to sex itself up to keep itself interesting. We are not hairy man-haters who bang on about domestic violence and abuse. We are fascinating women interested in fashion, relationships and true intimacy.

We have got a few more female MPs, our girls are doing well at school and isn't life grand?Well no. No it isn't."
