International Women's Day: Support Muslim women against oppression

As we celebrate International Women's Day I commend this rational and well thought out programme from Bread and Roses TV with Maryam Namazie.

The message needs to go out to the Western feminists who on the whole tend to forget their "brown sisters" due to their misplaced notion of "anti-imperialism".

The need to liberate women from the backward misogynist religion of Islam so that they have equal rights has never been more urgent as the treatment of women in Iran, Saudi Arabia and of course under ISIS is appalling.

Seems to me so many Western feminists hide from reality in "safe spaces" and "triggering" and refuse to face up to the real suffering of others. rather than just protecting their overblown sense of self importance.

There is a long way to go.

Stand up for Women's rights everywhere. Religion, especially Islam, cannot be used as an excuse!
