The feminist movement was supposed to be about equality of rights for women.
It was supposed to be about freeing women from male domination.
It was supposed to be about empowering women as individuals, and enabling them to attain their full potential.
Maybe feminists were never really committed to these goals at all. Maybe the whole thing was a stepping stone to something else.
Whatever the case may be, we have a pro-Sharia hijabi, Linda Sarsour, leading the Women’s March on Washington, and another, Hamas-linked CAIR’s Zahra Billoo, speaking at the Women’s Convention.
Islamic law directs men to beat disobedient women, devalues women’s testimony and inheritance rights, allows for polygamy and the sex slavery of infidel women.
It justifies honor killing and female genital mutilation.
Feminists ought to be on the front lines fighting against Sharia encroachment in the West, and jihad terror.
Instead, feminists stand in proud solidarity with Sharia supremacists.
Why are there Hijab Days at colleges and elsewhere, instead of days to stand with women who are brutalized for not wearing the hijab?
Why do feminist meetings feature pro-Sharia speakers, instead of courageous women who have left Islam, such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Nonie Darwish, and Wafa Sultan?
Find out just how odd this phenomenon is, and what it portends, in my new book Confessions of an Islamophobe.
In it, I set out why everyone who is really in favor of women’s rights should firmly oppose Sharia. But few do, for fear of charges of “Islamophobia.”
