Feminism In Afghanistan

There mis a subject that gets little air time these days…..Feminism.

A 2020 Dem candidate, Marianne Williamson, has made a comment about our stay in Afghanistan and wants to link it to the country’s grasp of feminism…..

Democrat 2020 presidential candidate, Marianne Williamson, says it is “unacceptable” for the Trump administration to consider pulling troops out of Afghanistan, because we need to ensure “the rights and protection of women” who were abused by the Taliban. Williamson referenced an article in the New York Times claiming the US is in Afghanistan to advance feminism. -GEG

Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Marianne Williamson said it’s “unacceptable” for the Trump administration to consider pulling troops out of Afghanistan because we need to ensure “the rights and protection of women” who were abused by the Taliban.

“The US withdrawing troops from Afghanistan without ensuring the rights and protection of women is is unacceptable,” Williamson tweeted on Saturday. “The Taliban’s history of brutality towards women must not be forgotten or ignored in these negotiations.”

Williamson linked to a propaganda piece from the New York Times justifying endless war to “woke” liberals by claiming the U.S. is in Afghanistan to advance feminism.


Sorry but we have been there for 18+ years and women have some rights they did not have but for the most part women’s rights is in the toilet and a lengthy stay by American troops will do nothing to change their plight.

She is not the only politico that claims that we could do more for Afghan women if we continue to stay in country….

Howard Dean last year similarly said we need to continue the endless war in Afghanistan to advance feminism:

“By withdrawing our troops from Afghanistan you are condemning millions of women to the Stone Age. No education, no choice about who they marry. They will become property when the Taliban takes over. Is that what you really want Ro? “

But what about the US government….is there any concern for the women of Afghanistan?

rural Kandahar, Afghanistan—birthplace of the Taliban movement—I hardly even saw a solitary grown woman. There, in the backwater of a country full of backwaters, adult women were rarely seen outdoors and never without a male family member as an escort.

The U.S. Government Doesn’t Care About Afghan Women

Do these people seriously see any change in the situation for Afghan women if the US stays or not?

  1. Sadly, I have to agree. It is up to the Afghan government to enact laws protecting their own female citizens, not to have that imposed by a foreign army.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Good thoughts, Chuq! I think we never will get something like our western feminism in these states too. There is a tradition which denies this, equal to some things you will find in Europe too. Be honest, only in the USA – tradition based on immigrants from several states – there was with equality of religions a way to empower feminism. I do not know whether, as here in Bavaria, it is good that women used for simple work, to compensate for demographically missing male labour force. Have a beautiful weekend! Michael

    1. Michael….we have equality only in theory….right now we need to pass the ERA and make it Federal law….hope you have a great weekend….chuq
