Orban just stopped 'gender studies' (aka feminist activism) from being studied at some universities in Hungary

Reader comment on item: Hungary: Not "Submitting to Islam"

Being sensible people, I gather only some 13 students will be affected. Even so, it is truly heartening.

It is the first time that a government successfully pushes back against this movement.

Feminism today is a branch of the radical left and weaponises women against men and society. Camille Paglia is, of course, a fabulous exception.

Somehow, seeing Orban do this fills me with hope. This could be the start of a Western pushback against other ideas of the contemporary radical left, such as the notion that women are simply people who identify as such and that everyone must acknowledge this.

Yes, conservatism is uniquely strong in Hungary. But will it spread?
