|Glamour UK:||What do you get riled up about in a feminist context?
|Gillian Anderson:||A lot. I have feminist bones and when I hear things or see people react to women in certain ways I have very little tolerance.
|Glamour UK:||But don't you feel sorry for modern men? Not knowing whether they should help us with our bags and open doors for us or whether we'll see it as an affront?
|Gillian Anderson:||No. I don't feel sorry for men.
"When men imagine a female uprising, they imagine a world in which women rule men as men have ruled women."
I feel this is very important.
It’s been apparent to me for a while that most men can’t really imagine “equality.” All they can imagine is having the existing power structure inverted.
I cannot decide whether this shows how unimaginative they are, or shows how aware they must be of what they do in order to so deeply fear having it turned on them.
Powerful words. Even I didn’t think much about this but now I will.
