The Canadian anti-feminist Karen Straughan – perhaps better known under her pseudonym ‘GirlWritesWhat’, or ‘GWW’ – is a legend in men’s human rights and anti-feminism circles. Her websites include http://www.youtube.com/user/girlwriteswhat.
Her recent presentation to the New York Libertarian Convention has come to my attention, thanks to the good folk at ‘A Voice for Men’, and the video is downloadable from the link below. It’s a little over an hour long, but anyone wanting to understand why radical/militant/gender/ideological feminism has been an ever more powerful scourge of the developed world for 30+ years would learn a lot from it. Her forensic analysis and debunking of the ‘patriarchy’ concept – the myth that men as a class oppress women as a class, and have done so throughout history – is very impressive. While she sometimes draws on material from the US and Canada, in the UK we encounter exactly the same phenomena. It was good to hear Harriet Harman included in the critique, namely with respect to one of her more notorious comments about men and families. Enjoy:
