Margaret Atwood: Equalising wealth is a key piece of the puzzle
It would appear that Ms. Atwood doesn’t know that wealth is unequally spread – women have more of it*. All those widows…..

Lola Okolosie: Free childcare is essential for equality
Why? Takes two to tango, why shouldn’t both who tangoed cover the costs of having done so?
Polly Toynbee: Gender equality will take generations
How long will it take to de-objectify women?

No, this does not mean that women are only objects. But to demand that they never are is to deny the basics of human sexuality – for both men and women.
Athene Donald: Automation may disrupt gender roles
I think automation will cause quite a disruption in terms of work and gender roles, but this is a real unknown. People can speculate all they like but we are humans and don’t necessarily behave as the rational actors that economists describe.

Ah, yes, the revolution.
