Removal of resistance: In the end she saw what men like Corbyn already know - that most of those women, no doubt 'feminist' in 'public' were, in private, actually just paid up members of total immorality! Yes, the morality Tomlinson imagined all the women in the room to have and some of the men at least, turns out to not exist.
Unification: Sorry Abby. It'll be hard for you to cope with what the world really is, and the absurd hypocrisy of what M.G. Piety calls << kneejerk 'feminists' >>, in all probability (that's my speciality, probability) you will go into denial and continue to hold neoliberal beliefs. Alas. Nor will my encouraging you to read TVhobo help, even though it could, but people like you (members of the fake elite) just can't handle reading this. My many many readers never include people like you! More women read it than men, though. Tells us something about your take on 'feminism', though doesn't it?
Just remember the word 'feminist' is widely used. I remember deleting a facebook friend in America who refused to take my advice about not posting/sharing 'feminist memes' from Jayda Fransen, involving videos of black male shop lifters being beaten up by white female shop assistants. Not really sure that's what you, Abby, want 'feminism' to be associated with - Jayda Fransen? Really? The more you bury your head in the sand over criticisms like the one I've made about you today, the more people out there call Jayda Fransen a feminist!!! Do your homework, journalist. You're paid to write what you do - and yet you fail. Take a lesson from one who does this for free, and for years has done, just giving my abilities to society, not collecting some cheque from a corporation which helps create propaganda to drive genocide the way you do in the end (not your fault - EVERY SINGLE 'mainstream' journalist, sadly for them, can be 100% accurately described that way and no court in the land is likely to ever contradict that patent truth, the evidence is so overwhelming).
Again, Abby - JAYDA FRANSEN IS NOT A FEMINIST - it's time people like you try and educate more women to appreciate that, and men, no doubt, although male readers are much more likely to listen to me or M.G. Piety than to you, I suspect.
There's only one thing you or I can do to make it so that the WOMEN and the MEN in the room would actually do what they all knew they should do, you need to address subservience to our current corporate-consumer customs, the totalitarianism which controls the way people behave towards their bosses and their 'underlings' and their 'co workers' and all beyond that, their friends, their family.
Gender is not something to worry about - ALL the people in the room failed, not just the men.
If you want to fix the problem you have to take away their/your 'god' - the reason they all sat like lemmings and did nothing.
I know if I had been there I'd have taken the fucker down, punched his lights out, and the last time I hit anyone was about 1992. I could never be employed so as to have been in that room. If anyone had ever let me into a room like that, there'd be ten others in the room in front of me, decking him, in fact.
Once he became violent, he needed to be controlled physically. The room failed to do that. ANY woman could have merely spoken. Anyone in that room could have driven a counter-response quickly.
Instead, one story I hear, is that they applauded. They applauded. Did any women applaud? I'll look into it and see if there is any detail of that nature. The fact is that it seems probable that if there was applause it wasn't 'just' from men.
If you want to really do something and not just play 'let's pretend' and talk a lot of emotive crap, Abby, what you need to face up to is what caused the problem in that room.
ALL of the people in it failed. Some of them were clearly women. You should be addressing them all, otherwise nothing at all will change.
