I bought Cherie Blair: In My Own Words yesterday. I’m almost finished. I know not everyone will agree, but from the point of view of a feminist who thinks that woman should be in high placed jobs just like men, that women should penetrate the arcaic mens institutions (like the Bar) which they have been held out of for so long, Cherie Blair is a fucking hero.
1) Working Class girl made good
2) No airs or graces
3) worked hard to get her career
4) didnt give up just because her husband landed a good job
5) worked and brought up children (ok with nanny help).
I dont care what anyone says…shes my British Female Idol.
