Striking a Blow for Feminism


People rightly complain that there aren't enough female members of parliament, so here's a simple way to increase the number by 10: make Eton College co-educational. Around 20 MPs went to Eton, we've had 19 old Etonian prime ministers (including the current one) and there are 8 in the cabinet (12 if you include ones from the House of Lords). If Eton admitted girls as well as boys then 15 or 20 years from now it should all feed through.

Bonus! We'd also get more female judges, journalists, authors, actors, winners of the Victoria Cross (Eton: 37; women: 0) and mayors of London.
