I was watching University Challenge on Monday, & to my disgust, there was a set of questions on ‘henpecked husbands’ (I suspect from Ye Olden Days), & one of the questions said how one particular men was ‘shrew-ridden’. Classy. I shall wait with bated breath for questions about wives who were beaten, bullied & subjugated by their husbands (& by men in general) in Ye Olden Days, although I don’t hold out much hope. Why the BBC thought this was acceptable I don’t know.
