Council row does nothing for equality

By Lindy McDowell

Is the row about Councillor Graham Craig's praising the City Council CEO whizzing past him really about sexism? Or just party political sniping?

As a fervent believer in gender equality it strikes me as a bit sexist so many (men mostly) seem to infer the CEO couldn't have had a wee word herself if she felt offended. In the battle for women's rights we have bigger things to worry about than a well-meant throwaway line by a decent man.

I believe in equality but it isn't served by reaching the point where men are afraid to open their mouths about anything.
