The Naomi Wolf Award Goes to … Joan Scott, Misogynist


Joan Wallach Scott is an influential Princeton University historian whose poisonous brand of academic feminism sanctions Islamic misogyny in the name of cultural relativism. Her 2006 polemic, The Politics of the Veil, was an intellectually lazy attempt to shut down opponents of public veiling in France with broad accusations of racism, imperialism, and paranoia.

Death By Hijab. But What’s It Got To Do With Isadora Duncan?


I have gone on record, many times, about how hazardous the Islamic Veil is to women’s health in both medical and psychiatric terms. There are other kinds of health risks involved in adopting Islamically “modest” dress. For example, in England, Muslim nurses are now refusing to leave their arms uncovered below the [...]

The Orwellian Times in Belgium: Burqa Bans? Or the Banning of Free Speech?


A Parliamentary committee in Belgium has just voted to ban the burqa. The language of the ban is strategically neutral in terms of religion and ethnicity: It bans “face coverings,” not “niqab” or the “burqa.” This is the only approach that might work but I doubt that the full Parliament will approve it; and, [...]

Naomi Wolf, Will You Denounce the Honor Murder of Medine Memi?


In Turkey just recently, a father and grandfather repeatedly beat Medine Memi, a sixteen-year-old girl, for the crime of talking (allegedly) to boys. The police weren’t interested.

Introducing The Naomi Wolf Award


For too long, extraordinary feats of feminist moral blindness have gone unrecognized.  But now, those dark days are finally over.
Today, I am pleased to introduce The Naomi Wolf Award, affectionately known as The Howler.
The award bears the name of author Naomi Wolf, a third wave feminist who provoked a blogospheric kerfuffle last year with [...]

FLDS Mental Burqa: National Geographic & Every Woman’s Right to Be Slave


If Elissa could change anything, she wouldn’t have made that special meal for her ten brothers and sisters, and her three mothers. Trying to brighten the Polygamous house with flowers on the table had the catastrophic effect of drawing her step-father’s notice. Such domesticity told him the girl was ready to wed, ready to birth [...]
