Those Poor Oppressed New York Women.

Reader comment on item: Stop the NYC Madrassa

Submitted by maura collins (Canada), Aug 17, 2007 at 10:10

I have written to both Bloomberg and Klein on this most vexatious matter, but nary a reply from those City Princes. Apart from the nuttiness of opening Madrassas in Brooklyn, what intrigues me is the comment from Mrs. Almontaser that these girls who attend this 'school' will feel able to express they are part of New York Society. ? What, pray tell, is she talking about?

How on earth did women from that city manage to forge a future for themselves in every conceivable business before this nit wit came along? This belief would apply were these girls living in the Middle East, but they're not, they are living at the centre of the world in New York City. The only people who oppress these female children are the likes of this principal and her cronies, who inculcate them with beliefs from an era that is way beyond its sell-by-date. What parent would merrily hand over their daughter to such an establishment, and those who would, should perhaps consider their geographical location and make plans to live in a more rarefied country where such nonsense is more than tolerated.
