I was reading a story in the newspaper about a woman who’d had an argument with her husband because he’d been working very long hours. Because she was upset, the story said she “banished” him to the sofa. Of course, I wrote to the paper asking what kind of sexist “double-standards” attitude would allow anyone to think they have the right to “banish” their partner to the sofa and was pleased to see I received many positive comments, many from women. I am glad that your website is highlighting the problem of sexism in society and was especially glad to see that women are beginning to realise the ways in which sexism affects men too. Well done on the good work.
