Shilpa Shetty

I don't watch Celebrity Big Brother, but I have been reading reports in the press all day about the appalling behaviour of housemates towards Shilpa Shetty. I think that this is a clear case of racism, and Channel 4 should be disciplined severely by the regulator. I would feel more comfortable living in a society where we call a spade a spade, and are able to find it in ourselves to accept that racism still exists, and we still have to strive for equality on race as much as we do for gender.

Welcome to my blog!

Hi and welcome to my blog! I'm going to try to put something on this blog every few days at least. Mainly I guess I'll focus on feminism and gender issues, but I'll probably spill over into other left-wing issues from time to time too.

So...check back soon!
