Letter: Who's holding the baby?

AS PAUL ARCHER says (Letters, 21 February), the absence of birthing and breast-feeding equality between men and women is unfair. So is the absence of equality between such women's problems as menstruation and menopause, fibroids and prolapse, or cancer of the cervix, uterus, ovary and breast, on one side, and such men's problems as shaving, impotence, cancer of the testicle and prostate, or earlier ageing and death in general, on the other. But, speaking sociologically (and logically) rather than biologically, as Natasha Walter said (14 February): so what?
