I Don't Buy Leah McLaren's Brand of Feminism

Leah McLaren, a columnist with the Globe and Mail (and apparently the unofficial Czar of Womanhood); penned a letter this week to the very accomplished Nazanin Afshin-Jam MacKay -- the wife of Minister MacKay. In my opinion, writing such a letter seems to be no better example of an overinflated sense of self then when one assumes she has the social license to dictate the terms of another woman's life choices and to do it so publicly. Let us forget for a moment that the letter was penned as a response to perceived comments made by Minister MacKay, not his wife. Above anything else the letter is patronizing.
