Where are the Feminists in the fight against Islamism?

In the seventies the Feminist Movement seemed to be everywhere, challenging everything from wages for housework to opposing the veil and burka. Today the only group that seems to stand against religious fascism is FEMEN, an organisation that originated in the Ukraine and is now spreading  to other countries.

One doesn't have to agree with all their actions or ideas but their bravery and commitment to standing up to Putin, Le Pen and the Islamists has to be admired. They show up the so called radical activists like the Lindsey Germans of this world for the appeasers and right-wingers they really are.

But what has gone wrong with the Feminist movement. They are alive and kicking.

When the "comrade delta affair was exposed feminists were at the forefront of condemning the Socialist Workers Party and rightly so, even pushing for the SWP to be banned from college campuses.

At the same time the feminists seem oblivious to the growth of misogynist Islamism which poses far more of a danger than a small political sect like the SWP. 

It's not just in the UK. Phyllis Chesler writes

The upcoming annual conference of the National Organisation for Women (NOW) does not list ISIS or Boko Haram on its agenda. While the most recent Women's Studies annual conference did focus on foreign policy, they were only interested in Palestine, a country which has never existed, and support for which is often synonymous with an anti-Israel position. Privately, feminists favour non-intervention, non-violence and the need for multilateral action, and they blame America for practically everything wrong in the world......

Feminists are, typically, leftists who view "Amerika" and white Christian men as their most dangerous enemies, while remaining silent about Islamist barbarians such as ISIS.

Feminists strongly criticise Christianity and Judaism, but they're strangely reluctant to oppose Islam — as if doing so would be "racist." They fail to understand that a religion is a belief or an ideology, not a skin colour.

The new pseudo-feminists are more concerned with racism than with sexism, and disproportionately focused on Western imperialism, colonialism and capitalism than on Islam's long and ongoing history of imperialism, colonialism, anti-black racism, slavery, forced conversion and gender and religious apartheid.

And why? They are terrified of being seen as "politically incorrect" and then demonised and shunned for it.

To be frank they are "politically incorrect" but not in the sense they would understand. They are just plain wrong. 

To tell them that would probably result in accusations that their critics were "oppressing them".

The feminist left should take some lessons from FEMEN.
