Liberation, as Faludi further suggests, has now became the true American scourge. Just when women’s quest for equal rights had started to gain ground with extensive affirmative action programs in place; just when women had joined the ranks of virtually all the male dominated and prestigious and even macho professions; just when laws protecting rape victims and battered women from being belittled and attacked in court, almost predictably an antifeminist resistance set in. For everyone or two steps forward, there has been one step back.
We can say, in short, that efforts are underway to punish women, both biologically and legally. And we can also note that the phenomenon that Susan Faludi spotted and documented as early as 1991 was to grow much more pronounced in the years that followed.

I think groups of people don't fight for their rights until they feel they've become strong enough for the fight; and that strength is necessary because as they "win the battles", there will be more and more resistance.
KrazyshOt:I'm confused as to what this has to do with Islam at all... This country isn't under Sharia Law and it isn't illegal to draw a picture of Mohammad.
vhb: We become more 'infidelized' with this law. Now we are in real trouble with the long (head beheading) arms of "across continents" Sharia Law. What happened to common law long term relationships/it takes care of this issue.
KrazyshOt: What? Is this being ironic or funny? Because it doesn't make sense as a serious post.
