world-wide gender-equality-goal

Reader comment on item: Europe is Finished, Predicts Mark Steyn

Submitted by Demsci (Netherlands), Aug 18, 2009 at 03:36

When we look at the situation in Europe in the 21st century in Mark Steyn's way, the situation in Europe is dire indeed. We should pay much heed to the demographic situation now.

But, could we not try to first strive for gender-equality worldwide? With all our might? Because that would appeal to most of the women both in ACEA-countries (America-Canada-Europe-Australia) and in the 57 Islamic countries. And women are half the human population. At the same time we could emphasize that absolute gender-equality needs democracy. We could even fight in Afghanistan with a lot of determined women-fighters, because the enemies, the Taliban, are such male chauvinists (Patriarchalists). Real emancipated women participate in society and of their own free will will not want en masse more than 2 or 3 children, if the decision is theirs. One thing we seem to need is some form of positive goal, enthousiasm, commitment. An honest positive goal, designed to exploit Islam's achilles-heel, it's oppression of women by men. And worldwide gender-equality, embedded into democracy, seems to fit the bill!
