The anti-woman violence feminists are afraid to confront – published in the New York Post

In her article in the New York Post AHA Foundation’s founder, Ayaan Hirsi Ali calls on the women’s movement to advocate on behalf of all women rather than just their political bedfellows, in order to protect those women and girls at risk of FGM and other dangerous traditional practices.

Virtually every issue has become a partisan football in America’s politicized age of anti-Trump hysteria.

Except one.

The debate that has bucked this trend is the #MeToo campaign, which has successfully cut across party lines, wealth divides, race and religion. This powerful campaign has focused on taking down anyone who has exploited power and fame for sex, not just stereotypical members of the patriarchy in the form of rich, white males.

We’ve seen Bill Cosby, John Conyers, R. Kelly, Tavis Smiley, Tony Mendoza and Tariq Ramadan publicly shamed along with bastions of liberal values like Eric Schneiderman.

The #MeToo campaign has shown that sexual exploitation is not the purview of only some ethnicities or political parties.

Unfortunately, liberal feminists pick and choose which types of violence against women are worthy of this studiously nonpartisan approach. For example, female genital mutilation, forced marriage and honor violence seem not to be considered egregious enough to be taken up by the broader women’s movement. Instead, these barbaric violations of human rights don’t make it onto progressives’ radar. Rather, they’re excused or ignored by feminists because the perpetrators inflicting the violence tend to have brown skin.

    Absolutely right. It’s so obvious that the questions that have such obvious answers are ducked by parts of the left. Enough!
