On April 15th, 276 women were kidnapped by the brutal terrorist group Boko Haram, which launched the #BringBackOurGirls campaign on social media. “Bring Back Our Girls” sparked massive public outrage, yet N.O.W., Planned Parenthood and other self-proclaimed feminists were silent for days. Planned Parenthood only got involved (days later), when presumably their supporters put pressure on them to do so.
Throughout recent weeks, we have seen the attacks against religious minorities in Iraq unfold. A genocide is being carried out by The Islamic State, and women, children and religious minorities are being starved, maimed, raped and murdered. While the response across the world has been tremendous, so-called feminists and their organizations have remained silent.
How is it possible that the largest “feminist” organizations have failed to even mention the situation in Iraq?
N.O.W., Planned Parenthood and others have yet to even mention the attacks against women, children and others in Iraq, yet they continue to lament about birth control, abortion and LGBT issues.
The women across the nation who bemoaned the Supreme Court decision on the Hobby Lobby case, failed to comment on #BringBackOurGirls and haven’t said a single word about the attacks against women in Iraq. Look at the Facebook pages of the “feminists” who cried over Sandra Fluke’s testimony or who were in hysterics over the Hobby Lobby ruling — how many of them have commented on the Iraq situation? None that I’ve seen.
The situation in Iraq is so horrific and prominent in the news, that it is literally impossible for anyone not to know about it. These “feminists” know about it, so why have they been silent?
The feminist movement has completely failed women if when women need them most, they are nowhere to be found. The Islamic State’s genocide is the real “War on Women”, yet so-called “feminists” and so-called “feminist organizations” have remained silent.
If these women and their organizations truly cared about women and their well-being, they would have spoken out on this issue from the beginning. According to their actions, these organizations don’t truly care about women, they only care about boosting their profits.
True feminists, the time for you to speak up is now. We must lead the charge on this and speak out against the horrific violence that is being inflicted upon our sisters and others in Iraq, Nigeria, America and throughout the world. Be a voice for those who do not have one or are terrified for their lives to use it. We are blessed to live in a nation where we have a voice and we can speak up for others around the world.
Will the true feminists please stand up? Because N.O.W., Planned Parenthood and the faux feminists refuse to.
