Robert Fulford: How feminism changed the world
With the 100th International Women’s Day upon on us, this is surely the moment to acknowledge that feminists have fundamentally changed society throughout the democracies of the West. And changed it much for the better.

Barbara Kay: How Sarah Palin kneecapped feminism
The feminist revolution began as a necessary reform movement, but unfortunately evolved into a marxism-imbued, revolutionary one. Second-wave feminism’s focus soon shifted from women’s equal rights (which are limited to those defined by law) to women’s interests (which are limitless), as perceived through a victim’s lens.
