Some feminists claim to be very tolerant, but try rebuking their offer of help and you see how violent they can become.
A portrait photographer for the stars pushed a pregnant Muslim woman to the ground and called her a terrorist during a confrontation, the court heard.
Cinnamon Heathcote-Drury also called her a suicide bomber and the family of suicide bombers, it was alleged.
The 41-year-old, who has 11 portraits hanging in the National Portrait Gallery exhibitions including of London Mayor Boris Johnson, and Jeremy Paxman, denied the racially aggravated assault.
She told a jury at Isleworth Crown Court that the problems began in the Tesco store in Kensington, west London, when she offered to help the woman, Mounia Hamoumi, and her husband, unload their shopping purchases.
The court was told that she had heard that the husband refused to help his wife because he was too busy taking care of their children.
"I told her how that has to do with feminism, women helping women, and she said 'get lost,'", said Heathcote-Drury.
But the prosecutor, Abdel Sayed Nermine, said: "You object to that inequality do you not? Along with the woman wearing Islamic dress, you got in and instigated the incident.
"When your offer of help was rejected you became more confrontational and very soon lost control
and shouted at them.
"Your tone was aggressive and you used the words 'suicide bomber' and 'terrorist' and said: 'I am a British citizen. I do not know where you are from.'
"You went to the woman and pushed her.”
The mother of three, Mrs. Hamoumi, was six months pregnant at the time of the incident that occurred last year.
Heathcote-Drury is also accused of telling the family: "You're probably claiming Jobseeker's allowance.”
