Feminism and politics

Dan Hodges nails the difference between the Conservative and Labour parties on feminism:
' The idea the Labour Party is blazing a trail for women is one of the biggest jokes in British politics

On this day in 1975 Margaret Thatcher became the first female leader of the Conservative Party.
Yesterday the Labour Party unveiled its response. According to the Guardian "a bright pink minibus of female Labour MPs will tour constituencies to talk to female voters around the kitchen table".
