Born Equal

Writing about web page http://www.bbc.co.uk/drama/bornequal/

This was really intriguing 90-minute drama about social inbalances in the UK aired last night on BBC1. It was about some totally different characters who are linked by a homeless hostel: a rich investor, a guy who’d left prison, a pregnant single mother and child, a teenage girl and a refugee family. The director really got a good mix of interesting stories that were true to the realities of people you could expect living in the same quartier of London today. His aim was to show how the homeless live and what incidences led them there: persecution and abusive boyfriends/husbands. If you can, try and catch the repeat of it sometime, its really good.

    The majority of homeless are men, the largest single catalyst for their ‘downfall’ is a loss of a relationship, yet still there is the idea that all the ills in the world fall on women and are driven by ‘abusive’ men.

    Women are ‘hurt and upset’ when they are angry argue and shout, men are ‘abusive’? yeah sure
