Saying that women beating children disproves feminism seems childish to me:

But you beating the white keys, like you beat your wife, points to the opposite.

No amount of how-to information is going to work if you have the wrong mindset, the wrong guiding philosophies. Avoid losers like the plague, and gather with and learn from winners only.

The poorly written lines in the speech were not her own, and the mediocre actress she is could not help revealing that throughout her performance. Useless PR, rather damaging to the cause of women's rights I would say because it rather confirms the existing stereotypes.

The presenter in the video clip uses plain demagogics, with his point about "women hitting children more than men do" being the cheapest and silliest argument against women I have ever heard.
Yeah, he is a straight demagogue, and once you become aware of how affectedly persuasive and patronizing he sounds whenever he makes a point it's really hard to watch peacefully

If that's the one I saw before (guessing it is) I thought it was interesting in that she said feminism had come to mean anti-man or something like that.  That she was inviting men back.

I wouldn't mind seeing someone promoting everyone though.  Women, minorities, etc....  I would think the goal is for everyone, not any one group.  I don't know what all the arguments are for having an equal number of people in every area.  It's more the idea that if you're focusing on one group, you're excluding someone else.  All, everyone, etc.... That sounds very positive.
