We think we live in a post-feminist society, and we do not. So we’re told we don’t need feminism anymore, that we have the vote and we’re all good. And I think, actually, that’s incredibly disconcerting because then when young women move into the world and they realize, ‘Oh, why am I not being paid the same? Why am I being treated differently?’ And they start to blame themselves, because they don’t understand they’re part of a historic pattern. They’re part of a much larger system which is working a little bit against them.
