"From a marketing point of view I think the point Simon has been trying to make, but perhaps hasn’t been able to put succinctly, is we are all selling our dream of a better way for everyone. We all feel incredibly angry for the injustices that have been done to us.. God knows there are days where if my partner’s ex were standing in front of me I would want to physically tear her apart. However I don’t believe that is the solution.
If we are publicly angry with women as a group we will actually bring ourselves down because the sub-text of that is that we will convey that we perhaps don’t truly believe in equality. Behind the scenes it is okay to vent to each other because that is what we are here for to hear each other’s grievances."
