"Today’s feminism is opposed to criticism and nuance, refusing to allow women to form their own opinions or challenge preconceived ideas"
Ella Whelan is a political commentator and freelance journalist. After graduating in 2014, Ella joined online politics magazine Spiked, and quickly rose to assistant editor. She is a producer of the annual Battle of Ideas Festival in central London and writes for the Sunday Times, the Sun and the Economist. Ella regularly appears in the media; her criticism of no-platforming and 21st century feminism has caused her to clash with mainstream journalists on the BBC, Sky, and Channel 4. Her first book, What Women Want: Fun, Freedom and an End to Feminism, was described as "a leading voice of a rising generation of young warriors for free speech" by distinguished social critic Camille Paglia.
