In general, I think she has a problem with men (Presidents?) in power. See:

Ah, so Marie-Jose Ragab IS A PRO-LIFE FEMINIST!

And yes, you have to scroll way down on the page to find it. Maybe pro-life feminists should just stop being feminists altogether, and for a change, help us to pass a law to outlaw all abortion.

There's no sense in their promotions of Susan B. Anthony and her policy of blaming men instead of simply outlawing it.

Everything she writes is wacky like this. Politically she is all over the spectrum.

Here's an example of Ragab's tendency to manufacture data. From:

Further, with higher education increasingly essential in today's society, too few women are entering and finishing college or going on to graduate or professional school. Today, women earn only one in three of the B.A.'s and M.A.'s granted, and one in ten of the Ph. D.'s.

This jumped right out at me as "postprocessed bovine fodder." So... I went to the National Center for Education Statistics:

Bachelor's degrees:
Total 1,254,628
Men 536,060
Women 718,568

So Raghab says that women earn one in three degrees; they actually earn 57.3%. But of course, maybe Raghab's wrong about that; is she right about the PhDs? Let's go back to Table 5 of the report, which was written by one Laura G. Knapp (sounds like a gender traitor to me) and is called, "Postsecondary Institutions in the United States: Fall 2000 and Degrees and Other Awards Conferred: 1999-2000":

Doctor's degrees
Total 44,947
Men 25,064
Women 19,883

There is not much in common between this, which is 44.2%, and the "one in ten" that Raghab fumes about. Intermediate degrees (masters', certificates) favour women; professional (law, medicine) favour men, by similarly small amounts. You can look it up here. The .pdf file is on that page... the link next to Online Availability (or click here; note, it's 428 KB.

So... the most charitable view is that wannabee-mister Raghab is a bit careless with the facts. More likely she completely makes them up, or has denounced statistics as an example of male hegemony, and is relying on her woman's intuition -- which might have worked if she were a less unnatural woman...

Or maybe people stopped sending their daughters to college after 2000 (the most recent statistics available) and Raghab is the only one who knows about it... yeah, right...
