Women held back from paid work as too busy cleaning!

Cleaners not women!

Clueless Cameron blinded by upper class male privilege!

Don’t be silly, Laura. Cleaners aren’t people, let alone women.

Although I agree that women’s careers are often put on the line so that they can care for children and the house, it is important to remember that feminism does not dictate what a woman should do and if she chooses to care for her children and her house then that is her choice and she should not be judged for it. Cleaners ARE people and women are not above men, just equal to them. (Although i think that comment was a joke- it made me smile- i just want to make things clear. :’) )
