	The younger generation realised that feminism was doing them more
harm than good, judging from my sons girlfriends attitudes, and the
younger co workers of mine. I even have women  opening doors for me, and
standing aside to let me go first into the lift (elevator), things that I
won't do for them. :) 

	Only thing that I don't agree with, is a woman being robbed of
total identity,like being referred to as 'Mrs John Harman', like they used
to here.
