Rachel Joins Sean on Magic Afternoons to describe why she left the newspaper after she felt forced to publish her opinion piece on an online blog after delays from the editor.

She writes, "It seems far-fetched that the mere hiring of a Massey University venue by a feminist organisation could cause so much indignation and rage, but these are not typical times."
