Where are the feminists????

Women are being killed in Gaza..but silence from western feminists...
Honor killings are one of the area’s most sensitive legal and moral dilemmas. They are not condoned by Sharia, but they are becoming increasingly common in lawless Gaza. Under the Palestinian criminal code, murder can carry a death sentence, usually by hanging. But according to Palestinian officials, there has never been a case when the perpetrator of an honor killing has been executed. The killers often serve little more than three years, and rarely more than seven. Neither Fatah politicians nor the Islamists in Hamas are particularly sympathetic to the victims, even in peacetime. Amid the chaotic indifference of civil war, they are even less so. In 2007 alone, there have been a dozen honor killings, according to rights groups. "There is a very clear increase in the killing of women," says Younis.

Also where are the feminists in regards to Human Rights for Native Woman. Shame on the opposition for their continued support of Native Woman as second class canadian citizens.

On the front pages, accusing the CPC of being anti-women, for cutting funds for office space that was re-distributed to real programs.

Fighting for pay equity for women in the over $100,000 club,
yet, Native women are rummaging thru garbage dumps and Chiefs are driving new red 4X4s. (I saw this with my very own eyes in Naicam Saskatchewan, 1995. The image is burnt into my brain)

Feminists are also doing the war of words with those women who choose to stay at home with the kids, belittling women who think parenting is the most important and gratifying job in the world.
Criticizing, labeling and demeaning women who follow their own moral beliefs.

Feminists don't realy seem to like women, why would they help them, here or anywhere else....

Feminists went extinct in the late 70's. Socialists took over the movement from the little ladies and now that's the only tune they play - if a man is a good enough socialist, or is at least strongly enough against people who aren't socialists - he could be a rapist and that would be fine with modern 'feminists'... just ask Bill Clinton...
