So begins a very interesting read in the latest edition of the superb Atlantic Monthly.

We'd like to test some of the theories mentioned in this article to see whether the European reality matches the American experience.

To that end, we want to hear from women of all ages and backgrounds, to find out whether they believe they are now living in a 'feminised' world.

Do you see your workplace and home as havens of equality?

Did you live through the feminist waves of the last three decades? Is the European society of today what you expected?

Tell us how feminism has changed your life? Is it still relevant to the lives of younger women and to those who are not counted among middle class professionals?

Why does feminism seem to be making a comeback in the UK if the world now belongs to women?

What are the battles still to be won to ensure true equality? 

We'll use your replies for a September feature article.

Thanks in advance for taking part.
