Cameron Diaz managed to turn a massive misogyny argument into two clear sentences about single women. Brilliant and brief, yay.

Cameron Diaz is sick of the media treating single women like second class citizens, according to a new interview with Self magazine.

She believes women are always pinned as the ones who made 'mistakes' when a relationship ends - even if the bloke was a massive douche bag.

She argues, "If a relationship fails, it's because the woman couldn't hold on to her man, not that the man cheated. It's terrifying for a woman to get out of a relationship, because it's always going to be her fault.

"I get that a lot, being a single woman. The reports are always saying that I'm "acting inappropriately" toward men. I don't at all harp on that s—, but I clock it. I notice it. And then I let it go because there is nothing I can do about it."

The actress and author also criticised the "chauvinism and misogyny" of the film industry and the way it's rubbing off on young girls.

We have to agree with Cameron on the single front. Can't a woman just choose to be happy on her own, without a man? There are two people in a relationship, so it stands to reason they both need to play a part in ending it.

Cameron, we salute you. And to celebrate we're going to listen to this on loop this afternoon...
