Reasons behind feminism have been lost

Re: Feminism gone too far in Canada (Comment, March 4)

I just wanted to say what an amazing well-put column you wrote in the News on Friday.

It’s funny because we have been hearing a lot about feminism lately and how some people say they are feminists but get criticized that they really aren’t. It’s like they have lost the whole reasoning of what they were once passionate about.

I believe that life today is so equal between males and females. The sad part is that when a woman chooses to be a housewife they get shunned – and typically by a feminist!

Thanks for hopefully opening some people’s eyes, but I have a feeling you will get a few nasty letters from some feminists.
