Quote Of The Day

“The feminists at Harvard seek to remove every vestige of patriarchy in America, but they have said almost nothing about the complete dismissal of women’s rights by radical Islam. To do so would be to attack Islamic culture, and according to multiculturalism, every culture is equal and none is evil. They forsake women in societies that repudiate women’s rights and direct their complaints to societies that believe in women’s rights. Of course it’s easier to complain to someone who listens to you and doesn’t immediately proceed to slit your throat. No sign of any rethinking of feminism has appeared in the universities where it flourishes”. — Harvey Mansfield, Harvard government professor writing in the Boston Globe.

  • I have heard similar comments and I believe they are inaccurate and are only stated to stirr emotion.

    Why would feminists embrace any culture that preaches against their core beliefs? I am willing to bet that feminists in Islamic countries are against anti-feminist beliefs within fundamental Islam just like feminists in Christian cultures are against anti-feminist beliefs within fundamental Christianity.

    College students rarely have the ability to make a major impact on the culture and government of foreign nations. They do, however, tend to get involved locally up to a national level. In some cases, such as with Female Genital Mutilation, young feminists have taken on foreign causes and helped to bring them to the spotlight.

    Whenever I hear somebody such as Harvey Mansfield state an opinion, I wonder if he is desperately trying to guilt trip feminists into somehow supporting wars against Islamic nations or into demonizing entire masses of people in the Islamic world. It honestly sounds like silly propoganda. I think adopting that mentality would only hurt the feminist cause in the Islamic world. The feminist movement isn’t a polarized struggle of two sides, one that worships George W’s manpiece, and another that wears birkas and beheads any female who sneezes… rather the feminist movement is about feminist ideals and ultimately breaking barriers that were traditionally imposed upon females. Demonizing and generalizing entire ethnic groups does not really fit that agenda.

  • They don’t have to demonize entire groups, or even support all wars, they could do something as simple as protest the admittance by Yale of a Taliban representative, remember the Taliban was one of the most oppressive regimes against women in the world, see here.

    These are among other things that make the feminist movement; especially the college run feminist movement, nothing more than another arm of the democratic party. For more examples see here.
