Gender issues speech balanced, informative

TORONTO – “When you look at the way feminists have responded to men’s issues it’s a pretty bad record,” said American journalist Cathy Young at a controversial event in Toronto Thursday night. A movement that was once about equality seems to have transformed in strange ways, its excesses amplified by the internet and campus theatrics.

It’s sad that I even need to describe Young’s talk, entitled “The Politics of Gender and Victimhood”, as “controversial”.
