The 64-year-old TV star has slammed Kim and other women who flash their flesh in the name of feminism, insisting the reality star's justification for posting semi-naked selfies on social media is nonsense.

Sharon explained: "Kim says she's doing everything in the name of feminism, but that's not feminism!

"Those girls live off their bodies, half of LA has been through them and everything they do from the sex tape to the plastic see-through dresses and the gym wear is about sex, not female progress. And listen: God bless them."

Sharon has no qualms with Kim's X-rated photographs, but she is appalled by the brunette beauty's claims she is a feminist.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph newspaper, she said: "If Kim wants to show off her body, fine. But that's not feminism, that's being a ho. And there's nothing wrong with being a ho, but always remember what you are."

Sharon became a music manager thanks to the influence of her dad Don Arden, who famously managed Black Sabbath and even sacked Ozzy Osbourne, her future husband, from the band.

And, looking back on her turbulent career in the industry, Sharon admits the role of women has changed markedly.

She shared: "When I first started in the music industry there were no women of any power there.

"In the 1970s you were treated like a secretary and told to get people a sandwich, because that's what you were good for. And most women just couldn't do any better, but I could because of my father - and because I had a lot of front."

Sharon is impressed by the progress women have made over recent decades, but she still believes their efforts are underappreciated.

The TV star explained: "The fact that a woman doing the same job as a man still gets less is insanity.

"I think all the women in the world should set a date and go on strike for two days. Trust me, in those two days, not a lot would get done."
