I've already identified Margery Eagan as a liberal feminist so you answer is no, I do not agree with everything she is saying here. I only commented on the one part of the column that I do agree with, that is that women are a moderating and civilizing influence upon men. Now that's not advocating the "feminization" of men or anything like that. I detest the feminist approach of emasculation and their ideal of a "sensitive man." That is not what I am talking about here. I think there can be a good argument made that the treatment of women in the Taliban is a contributing factor to the men being angry and frustrated to the point where they would turn to terrorism as an outlet.
Thanks for the reply. I agree with what you said.
Women and men who are free make up the whole of humanity. When women are oppressed, then all suffer the consequences of that oppression.
