So, the democrats tried throughout the last election to convince the votes that republicans are waging a 'war on women'... whatever that might be.  Apparently because republicans tend to loathe abortion (something that kills an awful lot of future women), those mean ol' republicans must be waging war on women.  I'm not sure of the logic behind that but there it is.

Meanwhile, across the pond there is a real 'war' on women and they're having a sale.  If you want a woman of your own, islam has some pretty reasonable prices: 

In response, the group determined specific prices for women and children, while “vowing to execute whoever violates those controls.” This is the worth of a human life, according to ISIS: 

  • A woman, 40 to 50-years-old: 50,000 dinars. ($42.90)
  • A woman, 30 to 40-years-old: 75,000 dinars. ($64.35)
  • A woman, 20 to 30-years-old: 100,000 dinars. ($85.80)
  • A girl, 10 to 20-years-old: 150,000 dinars. ($128.70)
  • A child, 1 to 9-years-old: 200,000 dinars. ($171.60) 

New York PostDaily MailRTInternational Business TimesOpposing Views and Christianity Today are among the few outlets to report on the story.

I'm not actually a conservative but I find it noteworthy that the rags that have chosen to air this atrocity are mainly conservative rags.

Violence against Women: Some Inconvenient Data for the Corrupt UN

https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/10569/violence-against-women
June 28, 2017

..............According to the Global Gender Gap Index of the World Economic Forum, there is not a single overwhelmingly Muslim nation in the best 50 scoring list of countries. In contrast, the last (worst) rankings of the index, from 128th to 144th, are without exception overwhelmingly Muslim countries, including Turkey at the 130th place. Turkey's case is important to note, as the increasing supremacy of Islamist politics in daily life in the country has boosted patriarchal behavior and worsened gender equality since 2002, when President (then Prime Minister) Recep Tayyip Erdogan came to power. In other words Turkey, the 17th biggest economy in the world, is the 15th-last country in terms of gender equality.

The United Nations Population Fund grimly observed in a report:

"... women and girls are still exposed to violence, being abused, trafficked, their access to education and political participation is refused and face with many other human rights violations ... The fact of violence against women as a concept emerged through gender inequality is widespread in Turkey".

A 2013 Hurriyet Daily News survey found that 34% of Turkish men think violence against women is "occasionally necessary," while 28% say violence can be used to discipline women; a combined 62% approval of violence against women.

In 2014, Turkey's Family and Social Policies Ministry reported that its domestic violence hotline received over 100,000 calls, and estimated that the number of unreported cases is three to five times that number.

A 2016 study by the same ministry revealed that no fewer than 86% of Turkish women have suffered physical or psychological violence at the hands of their partners or family. According to the ministry's findings, physical violence is the most common form of abuse, as 70% of women reported they were physically assaulted...............>

After being held prisoner by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) for nearly three years, Heiza Shankal is finally free -- and she has returned to her hometown to fight the extremists and "take revenge."
...
"I was sold and bought ... in Raqqa, and I was finally liberated," Heiza says. When she finally regained her freedom, "I arrived to the hands of the comrades and they brought me to Shankal." Back in her hometown, Heiza was ready to fight the group that had put her through so much pain, so she joined a women's resistance unit to battle ISIS. "I was surprised to see a military force for protecting Shankal, so I decided to join the unit and take revenge," she says.

 Saturday 19 August 2017       Finland knife attacker 'targeted women'

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/aug/19/finland-police-believe-turku-knife-attack-was-terrorism

An 18-year-old Moroccan man suspected of carrying out Friday’s deadly knife attack in Finland appeared to have targeted women as his victims, police have said. 

Officers are treating the attack in Turku, in which two people were killed and eight injured, as a terrorist act.

The two people killed were Finnish, while a British man, two Swedes and one Italian were among those injured.

Four of the wounded were still being treated in hospital – three in intensive care – while the rest of those injured were expected to be discharged on Saturday.

The Briton is believed to have sustained minor injuries. A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokeswoman said: “Our staff have offered support to a British man following an incident in Finland.”

The suspect arrived in Finland in 2016 and had been “part of the asylum process”, police said.

Officers arrested five people – four of whom were Moroccan – in a Turku apartment on Friday night as part of their investigation...............>

The female director who was issued a fatwa for her first film

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-41112388
3 September 2017

When 35-year-old Maysaloun Hamoud, a Palestinian director, said she wanted to "stir things up" with her movies - she achieved it.

Her first feature film, In Between, has resulted with her being issued with a fatwa (Islamic religious ruling), as well as death threats.

The movie, which is released in the UK this month, is about three young Arab women sharing an apartment in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.

Away from the traditions of their families, they find themselves "in between" the free lives they're aspiring to lead and the restrictions still imposed on them.

"It's naive to say, 'no I didn't expect any comeback' when I wrote it," says Hamoud, "but I didn't know how big it would be.................>

The femen ladies are annoying, but that's their intent.  They've got their issues and they harness the power of boobs to get those issues out.

What's interesting here is the difference in how these ladies are treated.  Now, in other demonstrations they have not been treated gently but I do not recall any incident where they were thrown to the ground and kicked repeatedly.  If anyone knows of such happening, do please bring the information forward.

I hope this might be the last straw when it comes to ignoring how islam treats women.  Probably not but... perhaps.

Thank you.  I thought that I remembered hearing that frakking had increased oil production enough that we no longer had to do business with saudi arabia.

Perhaps I'm going mad or perhaps it was frakking in Canada and the US combined?

IRAN is being internationally slammed for arresting a number of people for posting un-Islamic videos on Instagram — including a teenage girl who posted clips of herself dancing fully-clothed.

The hard-line Islamic country’s state TV channel broadcast a video on Friday in which Maedeh Hojabri, a 19-year-old gymnast, admitted breaking moral norms.



The initial report I saw said she was given a sentence of 4 years in prison and was to be whipped 80 times.  However, I've been unable to verify that anywhere.  I did find a BBC report saying, "In 2014, six young Iranians who posted a video of themselves dancing to Pharrell Williams' hit song Happy on the streets and rooftops of Tehran were given suspended sentences of up to one year in prison and 91 lashes."

I guess I missed the ongoing war on women.  It used to be a hard thing to be a woman in the work force.  And with children.  Not so any more.  I don't feel warred upon.  And I also don't allow it.  Women can be tough, we are not victims.

WOW This thread is still going. Congratulations. It’s difficult to accept a war against women since their annihilation ends humanity, but suppression of them through fear and example beheading in Saudi Arabia is just one way. Numerous ways exist throughout the world that suppress women. Some rise, anyway, even with the system against them. Some fall subservient even with the system for them. America has a “don’t worry your pretty little head about it “ system which is understandable since women had to fight for the right to vote a little while ago. Too many men still consider a woman their property and that seems to pass father to son, given the domestic violence against women rates in this country. You may be comfortable here and think you have a platform from which to speak shock and awe about the treatment of women in other countries, but American men are not that innocent....it’s a matter of degree. Beheading scares the bejeesus out of us, but shooting her in the head while she’s being interviewed by a reporter, on camera, live.....what do you file that under?

Women are not beaten on the streets in Turkey,  They are beaten in their homes.  (Sorry about the underlining.)  And in America women are not downtrodden unless they choose to be.  Those days are finished,

Those days are nowhere near finished,  Our YWCA fills hidden locations from abusive husbands, funds billboards denouncing abuse.  While some women believe they deserve it and stay others have a difficult time trying to escape.  Women should never date a policeman cause there is no escape, once in his possession.

It’s a big deal.  Wouldn’t you agree?

Agreed. We’re pretty in print and rightly complain when the hammer of the law must be wielded after so much time has passed.....can’t legislate good behavior, society must comply. They are not pretty even in print. Although rape in India was a given after 6 pm, the society wasn’t fully aware until an extreme case made the news and shamed the perpetrators and the country. Still would not venture out after 6 pm even with a male escort.....cause that was an unwritten rule and how many of those types read the news?

There are places worse than India, believe it or not.


In western culture, including the US, women are protected not only by custom but also by law.  Are there aberrations?  Of course.  Evil people exist.  


But here's the thing.  In western nations and western culture, women are safe to do silly stuff like this.  



They're not going to be assaulted.  They're not going to be raped.  Worst case, the cops arrest them for being silly.  


Not convinced?  How about this little experiment?

How prevalent is the woman abusing man problem? Is it even close to the stats in military or college campus rapes of women? Date rape drug use still worries women who just want to have fun. Women are free to wash cars bare breasted to make rent money, for awhile. Their city council managed to put an end to it, much to the disappointment of men for miles aroun who needed their cars washed. Good natured as most people took it, it was pretty darn risky. They made bundles of money. LOL

Last stats I remember put DV at 60/40 and child abuse mostly by women.  There is speculation that woman initiated DV is higher because it’s socially acceptable and men tend not to report it.

A neighbor I had in Kennewick WA was so harsh with her children that I was relieved when she went back to work. A nurse, she hated being a stay at home Mom. Hardly ever saw her husband, maybe she was harsh with him, too. Seldom went for coffee at a neighbors after that, just didn’t seem worth getting to know civilians. LOL
