Realising that's there quite a few left-wingers and/or feminists on my flist, I'd thought I'd give a heads up about this incredibly interesting Guardian article about sexism and socialism in Scottish politics.

I was particularly drawn to this quote

"The time has come to rid the left of male misogynists who view women as appendages"


It's a very telling remark and particularly relevant for Northern Irish politics where a sizeable element on the left (even Sinn Fein) regard women politicians as window dressing.
