Sir: Your report "Britain's fifth-richest woman turns screw on tenants" (18 May) puts an outrageous emphasis on the fact that the landlord is a woman, and the clear implication is that women, even in big business, are supposed to be intrinsically kinder than this. A woman who puts market forces ahead of her social conscience seems to be news in itself.
