I am a mum of two small boys and I consider myself to be a strident feminist.
I know this because I once went to see Caitlin Moran give a book reading, during which she made us all stand on our chairs and shout “I AM A STRIDENT FEMINIST” at the top of our lungs and we all fell over and it was very funny and empowering. Having said this, I’m going to let you in on a little secret – being a strident feminist mother of two small boys is exhausting.
