Independent: Yvette Cooper is right that women should stand up for Theresa May

I always had a sense of unease regarding the way in which men in particular expressed their personal disgust at Thatcher’s politics. It feels like an excuse for the guilt-free indulgence of misogyny

New Statesman: All the sexist headlines we can expect now that Meghan Markle is pregnant

“Meghan Markle is pregnant with Prince Harry’s first child” is just the start.

Independent: The fact that we’re considering making misandry a hate crime should concern everyone who believes in equality

It seems there’s nothing women can have – not even their status as a marginalised sex class – that men will not expect them to share

Independent: A woman may go to prison for a murder her boyfriend committed, because apparently men can’t possibly control their jealous rages

Given the amount of time judges spend deliberating how hard it is for men to know what we mean by the word 'no', how is it that women become master manipulators in cases such as this?

Independent: A former Ukip councillor has been jailed for murdering his wife – but according to his mates it’s him we should feel sorry for

The polarisation of political discourse has made misogyny not just more visible, but an acceptable expression of the rage of the self-styled common man

For so long, I’ve been held back by the sexist male genius paradox.

What is a man, anyway?

If left-wing men are so appalled by their own privilege, why don't they just become more like women?
