I FIND J Holdworth’s letter of August 13 (“Women bring peace”) to be an insult to men.

Women are no different to men when it comes to aggression and violence.

Look at Margaret Thatcher over the Falklands or Golda Meir, the Israeli politician.

Unfortunately we all have the vicious gene in us and until someone finds a way to eradicate it, it will stay with us – whether we are male or female.
