Well, it goes without saying that if I mention an Amis or a Waugh or even a Larkin here or there, I'm not necessarily endorsing their views or positions. They're all deeply conservative figures.

Amis calls himself a feminist, by the way, and says Gloria Steinem converted him to the cause "in a single day":

"I've been a passionate feminist since the mid-80s," he says. "It was Gloria Steinem who converted me in a single day in New York. It's the rhetorical device she uses throughout, and it's very effective: she just reverses the sexes – what if men menstruated, what if men had babies? It's unanswerable."

amis has also said that if there's to be any "reformation" within islamic cultures, it will (and must) ultimately be instigated and driven by women themselves -- standing up and saying we're not going to be your fucking slaves anymore. or something like that.
