Own worst enemy

AS a young female at the advent of second wave feminism in the 1970s, I vehemently supported the sisterhood and women’s equal rights.

Working in the media, here and in the UK during my 20s, I experienced much nasty and vile abuse from sadly, other women, at home, at work and play.

It is refreshing to read Peta Credlin (Opinion, March 11) affirming similar experience that “it can often be women that most inflict damage on other women.” This reality suggests so-called feminists should re-examine their biased applause for women per se and acknowledge they can often be more inimical to other women than some men.
