“I think in the 80’s you grew up with a hangover from the more strident feminism of the 70’s. Somehow feminism became a dirty word for a long time. I think even now girls aren’t really educated in feminism. You can have a history degree and not know anything about the suffragettes. It used to be just general parlance and nowadays it isn’t, and I think that’s a big shame. So I’ll call myself a feminist just for that reason.” Actress and writer Jennifer Saunders
