What I've began to realise over the last few weeks is the bigger picture. If I'd been in that crowd as teenage girl aspiring to work in the game...would it put me off? Quite possibly. Would I want my eight year old girl to witness it and believe that it was acceptable for her to be verbally abused due to the fact that she was a women? Absolutely not.
The thing that seems to have really upset people is that Ms Monroe is a woman who has made a public statement about her political beliefs. Let that settle in. A woman. Talking about politics. Yep. All those lefty men who were perfectly happy for Ms Monroe to promote the Labour Party are now asking Ms Monroe if she really understands how politics works.
I understand we can't all be perfect - I'm completely with Roxane Gay when she says it's better to be 'a bad feminist, than no feminist at all'. But I for one know that for all my blogging, I haven't contributed enough to concrete change, and I am determined to join a wave of feminism committed to tangible results.
