According to the perennially well-dressed Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, former first lady of France and retired supermodel, it’s time for women concerned with fighting for equality to take a rest and find another way to fill their days.
“My generation doesn’t need feminism,” she breezily informed French Vogue this week, before gushing about her newfound appreciation of “bourgeois” domesticity in the self-entitled manner only a wealthy inhabitant of two mansions can muster.
If only the 44-year-old heiress could tear herself away from her oh-so-enlightened existence long enough to peruse a few of the Twitter posts making news in far-flung Australia she might not be so smug about allegedly living in a post-feminist world.
