"Proponents of a traditional patriarchal ideology"... [LINK]

Just catching up in all the letters to the Globe, and I run across this zinger:

CATHY YOUNG ("At 40, is NOW what it set out to be then? " op ed, Aug. 14 ) brings up legitimate concerns about the future of feminism, but she targets the wrong organization for criticism . Certainly, gender equality is a battle that both sexes need to work on together, but the National Organization for Women understands that already.

Many of the leaders of the fathers' rights movement are proponents of a traditional patriarchal ideology that hurts women and girls. Young should be critiquing the anti feminist men, not NOW.

No evidence whatsoever of the last paragraph's claim, just the handy label demonizing the whole effort.

As yet, no comments:
