Socks argument proves 'women's unrealistic expectations' of men
Women have very unrealistic expectations of their male counterparts, according to a leading feminist.

Fay Weldon explained to the Daily Telegraph that men are not as in touch with women as they could be, particularly in the field of relationships where there is little emotional investment from gentlemen in comparison to their lady friends.

If anything, to let them get along with the way they work is best - something which has been illustrated by hosiery of all things, Ms Weldon believes.

She explained: "Women are right to refuse to make the coffee, but when you get home I'm afraid you have to make the coffee. It's such a waste of time trying to tell your husband to pick up the socks or clean the loo. It's much easier just to do it yourself."

Alongside her feminist campaigning, Ms Weldon is also a leading essayist and playwright who addresses society's role in perpetuating an anti-female agenda.
