Liberation of women in practice, not theory

Many working-class women joined yesterday morning's MTUC anti-fuel price hike protest at KLCC. They proved themselves to be as brave and vocal as men. They are certainly also more genuine and down-to-earth women's liberationists than many self-styled feminists in the mainstream media, rich-girl NGOs, ivory towers and parliament who usually enjoy discoursing topics like 'poverty and women' in seminars held in 5-star hotels.
