Lily Allen does not represent all feminism – and nor should she

“In my mind though, the wider question is not whether or not Lily Allen’s feminist song is a success or not; it’s why is it that one single music video containing some fairly cursory observations on sexism is able to stir up such a reaction in the feminist movement… perhaps the most helpful response we feminists can have to Lily Allen’s video is not to tear it down because of its flaws (although they should be addressed), but to look at feminism itself and discuss how to realise its potential as a political movement.”
