Miért nem harcolnak a feministák a muszlim nőkért? (magyar felirat)


culture matters it’s the primary source of social progress or regression now where do we see this more clearly than in the status of women the judeo-christian culture and perhaps a more up-to-date civilization has produced over time the law codes language and material prosperity that have greatly elevated women’s status but this progress is not shared everywhere there are still hundreds of millions of people that live in a culture the Islamic for instance that takes female inferiority for granted until recently these cultures the Western and the Islamic or for the most part separated but that is changing dramatically so large numbers of immigrant men from the Middle East South Asia and various parts of Africa have brought a different set of values to the West specifically Europe more than a million arrived in 2015 alone more are on the way as a result crimes against girls and women groping harassment assault and rape have risen sharply these crimes illustrates the stark difference between the Western culture of the victims and that of the perpetrators let me be clear not all immigrant men or even most indulge in sex attacks or approve of such attacks but it’s a grave mistake to deny that the value system of the attackers is radically different from the value system of the West in the West women are emancipated and sexually autonomous religiosity and sexual behavior or sexual restraint is determined by women’s individual wishes the other value system is one in which women are viewed as either commodities that is their Worth depends on their virginity or on the level of a prostitute if they’re guilty of public immodesty wearing a short skirt for example I do not believe these value systems can coexist the question is which value system will prevail unfortunately this remains an open question the current situation in Europe is deeply troubling not only our Muslim women within Europe to considerable oppression in many ways such norms now risk spreading to non-muslim women who face harassment from Muslim men one would think that Western feminists in the United States in Europe would be very disturbed by this obvious misogyny but sadly with few exceptions this does not appear to be the case common among many Western feminists is a type of moral confusion in which women are said to be oppressed everywhere and that this oppression in feminists Eve Ensler’s words is exactly the same around the world in the West just as in Pakistan Saudi Arabia and Iran to me this suggests too much moral relativism and an inadequate understanding of Sharia law it is true that the situation for women in the West is not perfect but can anyone truly deny that women enjoy greater freedom and opportunities in the United States France and Finland than they do in Iran Pakistan or Saudi Arabia other feminists have also argued that non-western women do not need saving and that any suggestion that they need help from Western feminists is insulting and condescending to non Western women my perspective is a practical one any efforts that help Muslim women whether they live in the West or under Islamic governments should be encouraged every effort to pressure these governments to change unjust laws should be supported Western feminists and female Western leaders have a simple choice to make either excuse the inexcusable or demand reform in cultures and religious doctrines but continue to oppress women nothing illustrates this better than what happened in Cologne Germany on New Year’s Eve 2015 last night during the city’s traditional celebrations numerous German women four hundred and sixty seven of the last count reported being sexually harassed or assaulted by men of North African and Arab origin within two months seventy three suspects had been identified most them from North Africa twelve of them have been linked to sexual crimes yet in response to the attacks colognes feminist mayor henrietta rica issued an arm’s-length guideline to women just keep an arm’s length distance between you and a mob of Arab men she advised Collins female population and you will define mayor rei’kas comments underline the seriousness of the problem a culture clash is upon us the first step in resolving it is to unapologetically defend the values that have allowed women to flourish feminists with their organizations networks and lobbying power need to be on the frontlines of this battle their relevance depends on it and so does the well-being of countless women Western and non-western I’m iron here see Ali of Harvard University for Prager University to subscribe to our YouTube channel click here to help keep our videos free donate here
