Yvette Cooper says more feminism needed in schools

In a recent Independent article Yvette Cooper laments that girls are routinely called “whore, bitch, slag, slut,” by boys, have their shirts forcibly undone, their skirts lifted and held up by groups of boys, and have half-naked photos shared around as acts of revenge by gangs of misogynistic boys. Josh O’Brien calls bullshit.


It’s plausible to think that ignoring the murdered boys, and paying extra attention to the kidnapped girls in Nigeria is merely because the latter are still alive and can be potentially saved. But, do you seriously think that if a terrorist group captured 200 boys and slaughtered thousands of girls, the headlines would be #bringbackourboys?
