1000 Terrible Things...

Meredith Burgmann and Yvette Roberts, two of the top feminist academics in Australia have compiled a book that quotes 1000 terrible things that men have said about women. They call it a “portfolio of piggery.”

“We’d like this to be seen as a way of poking fun at these men but it’s also a serious piece of research into misogyny.”

That is most definitely is. Some examples include “”In the old days, you were a good guy if you lifted your feet when she was vacuuming.”, and “”Come back when your IQ is as high as your skirt?”

Of course that’s only two, so you’ll have to find out the other 998 when you read the book!
