Hell hath no fury like an irate teenage girl

Something troubling is happening to our girls. I noticed it again most recently at this years Battle of Ideas–the annual festival of free speech staged at London’s Barbican by Claire Fox.

I feel right at home among the bright, engaged friendly crowds and when I speak, I generally get a warm reception.[/caption]
