Feminism is not about sticking a woman in our face.

Meet Heather Nauert. She may be the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Till a little while ago, she was a fox news anchor at Fox and friends, the show Trump watches intently. 

Since 1996, it seems Nauert has been a contributor and correspondent at Fox. Last year, she was offered a State Department spokesperson role as a Spokesperson.

The position justifying her nomination to the United Nations to fill in this highly academic public policy job has been that the Trump Administration wants to promote women to roles as these ones.



This is not feminism. This is a joke. Enabling women does not mean giving them jobs they are not qualified to do. It encompasses making sure they have the credibility to be able to do the job they are being asked to do. 

Just two months ago, Heather Nauert posted a picture on her Instagram of herself smiling in the Royal court of Saudi Arabia after the journalist Jamal Kashogi was murdered and dismembered.
She has no depth of knowledge about international affairs as she has publicly voiced support for KSA's role in the Yemen war where thousands of children are dying of hunger. She supported the war politically when the Canadian ambassador was expelled by the Saudi Government for demanding the released of an imprisoned human rights activist.

Her candidature does not seem right.

To call this feminism is a farce. Feminism is not about charity. Feminism is not about creating an uncreditworthy hierarchy. The fundamental value that the skills of a person bring to the role needs to be the basis of the choice of the person for this appointment.
If the choice still needs to be a woman, I am sure there are more qualified women in the US State Department with years of solid public policy experience who can fill the shoes to represent our country well.

The choice for this role should not be who Trump trusts and likes but who the right person qualified for the role is.

It's not a man or woman. It's about qualifications.

SO WHEN DOES LIFE BEGIN ?

We have been fighting a religion defined definition of “ when did the life of a fetus begin”. It is a trap. The debate around this whole concept is so ridiculous that when you see pages of theories being written about the exact time “life took a birth”

Why I call this entire argument ridiculous is because technically everything is life. A cell is a life. An ant is a life, a plant is a life. Zygotes are life too. However, if you choose to mourn the zygote the same way you chose to mourn taking the dead cells off the bottom off your feet- is a decision you need to make with yourself.



All of these arguments around “life” distract from the actual issue, which is that no human should be required to share their organs with another human. No human should be required to sacrifice their life for another human. The intention or reason behind abortion is irrelevant in the context of the right to bodily autonomy.
I would argue that the Liberal “pro-choice” people who aggressively insist that abortio…

THE ABORTION FIGHT IS NOT ABOUT ABORTION

It's about firing the 2020 base. And the mainstream media is helping Trump


When Trump spewed his most preposterous lie about abortion in a rally about how full-term babies were killed by Doctors; do you think no one in the crowd was grown up enough to know that it was a lie? These are full grown people who make more important and logical decisions in their lives every day- what to buy; what to do, where to spend, how to earn a living. Do you think they do not know that Trump was concocting imagery for the benefit of creating a national debate about disgust towards the concept of “abortion”? Abortion is painful. Emotionally, it never leaves a woman. I aborted in 1998, then miscarried in 2008 and 2011. Each time, I named those cells and fetuses, celebrate their lives and created a story for their absence in mine, those cells, which could not find viability, for one reason or the other. So for someone, and these 25 white men, and several others, who have never been through that life-…

The Clock is Ticking : BACKWARD FOR WOMEN

Sometimes it is just a customary sound; but a movement that takes us backward; instead of steering us forward.

2017 and 2018 have been the most regressive years in the progress of women. 

Since Trump became the President of the United States of America, a new culture of suppression of women rights has unleashed worldwide.  He has slowly degraded Women Rights by attacking fair pay legislation, defunding reproductive rights and changing the definition of violence against women. His attitude towards women is evident from the way he treats women and his objectification of the whole gender. In response, the women rights movement has revived itself, only to become negative and vicious.

No one wins when we have to fight. It is still a pity that we have to wave flags, march, hoist posters and commemorate each other on this day every year. We should not have to. 




The global economy could be enriched by about $160tn (£120tn) if women earned as much as men.
