Leading Irish feminist admits women are violent: 'Christine Ross, had responded to a district judge's remarks about women and violence by saying: "What he is doing is singling out women.

Rape crisis centre in B.C. endures assault
Saturday, December 23, 2000, Michele Landsberg, Toronto Star
The old hag at it again. Apparently, the women's movement cannot survice in this country without being discriminatory and bigotted powers to fight discrimination and bigotry that does not meet their acceptable criteria of discrimination and bigotry. Or something like that. As if she knew what being a man in this country is like. The eugenics has not yet been eradicated from the women's movement -- beware.
