What I was actually talking about was the way that women should be more angry about what is happening to us. I believe in anger. Everything I wanted for my daughters and yours is being denied them: housing, free education, employment. It makes me nauseous to see feckless Etonians kick single parents in the face. It makes me ill that meritocracy is the ruling-class myth, that policy is not about economics but rancid ideology. I wanted to say again that feminism is not a white, middle-class concern: look at Sierra Leone, Egypt, India.
When I say “women”, I don’t much care if you were born or became one. I am with RuPaul: “Honey, we are born naked, the rest is drag.” What I do care about is something that is deeply old-fashioned: solidarity.
