I think it’s important that there is a feminist critique of television, because things that go unquestioned go unchanged and what goes unchanged becomes institutionalized and what becomes institutionalized becomes your fault. So it should be questioned. I do think some of the criticism personally aimed at me is a bit over the top and unfair, but who said the prosecution has to be fair? And it’s a case that needs to be prosecuted.
