This International Women’s Day, let’s not forget the seemingly endless suffering of women in the third world. These women have no access to education, no protection under the law, and often have to endure consequences for being the victims of rape and torture.
It’s time to take concrete action to address the state of women’s rights in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia… But we can’t begin to do that unless we acknowledge a solid definition for what constitutes a violation of women’s rights. The constant blather from western feminist dialogue deligitimizes systems that guarantee equitable access to services and opportunities for females due to the feminists’ issues with minor aspects of the social traditions and basic common decencies surrounding that system. This essentially works to drown out of the cries of pain from women in countries where the idea of healthcare, education, sexual freedom, and social stability is a mere fantasy barely even conceivable, let alone having the great luxury to take issue with the smallest of trivialities — Like how the word ‘slut’ is percieved.
