No, Amnesty, Women Don’t Need Protection From Men


Amnesty International's war on 'Toxic Twitter' is an insult to women. What today's censorious feminists have forgotten is that every major victory for women's rights - the right of women to attend university, to vote, for equal pay, for access to abortion and contraception - was at one time considered grossly offensive by some. If causing offence had been prohibited, not one of these campaigns would have got off the ground. Women's rights were won not by asking to be protected, but by offending. Rolling back free speech in the name of feminism is truly insulting to women.
