Feminists have accomplished a great deal. I'm old enough to remember how women were treated in the 1940s and 1950s. We've come a long way since then. There may still be some little distance to go but the gap is nowhere near what it was.
Women opposed? Well, Mrs Didge is opposed only if somebody wants to call her Ms Didge. She's happy to be a Mrs and doesn't want that changed to suit somebody else's terminology.
Dame Edith Evans was also opposed and once said, "If they want to be like men, why can't they be like gentlemen?" The problem with that, of course (to further mutilate Leo Durocher's famous comment) is that nice girls finish last. Sometimes you just gotta use some muscle.
Have a listen to this song by Peggy Seeger. I think it spells out the problem women have faced ever since we used to drag them around by their hair.
