Should feminist politicians put women's rights before the global economic crisis?
It looks like feminist government minister Harriet Harman wants to take over as government leader. Yet she puts women's issues above all other issues time and again. For example: "she was trying to "muscle in" on the G20 summit [on the global economic crisis] in April by staging an international women's conference at the same time" http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7900650.stm Should a feminist president or prime minister put women first and men, the economy, and everything else second? "How is this woman being taken seriously? Is there any dissent?" Harman gets away with spouting the most outrageous nonsense e.g. the if a man and woman are equally qualified for a job, the woman should be given the job. Is there dissent? Most people don't see a problem. After 40 years of feminism we have learned that sexism against men = equality.

They shouldn't. But they would. Hey who cares about global warming or the inflation or the economy? That ONE particular woman has to be given the job over that man ! THAT will save the world and the economy !

Kommissar Harman should not be playing politics with people's lives and livelihoods. I do not think I would be putting it too strongly to label her as a fanatic.

I think female and male politicians each have something to offer to society; especially since society is comprised of both men and women. So, logically, women and men should both have the opportunity to participate in government. If a women messes up in poltics, it's because it was that "one" women who did not have the... More

"Most people don't see a problem." I haven't seen anyone who DOESN'T see a problem with her! Hillary Clinton is well-known as a feminist. She's also smart. If she were president, I have no doubt that the economic crisis would be her top priority.
