Feminists: What have you done to raise awareness of this movement in countries where women are discriminated?

I'm not talking about the type of discrimination where a man jokingly calls another a "sissy" or an other effeminate term in order to diminish him, but rather about the type of discrimination where women are stoned to death for having spoken back to their husbands. h*********u helping those women? Those women who are in greater need of help than Western women were in the 1800s?

well maybe they shouldn't speak back in the first place? P.S.- seriously though- speaking back is not a serious enough offense in even the most radical islam societies. That level of punishment is reserved for women who cheat on their husbands (though husbands who cheat on their women are not punished).

I sponsor girls in Haiti to help them get an education. Educated women are much less likely to become victims.

Me personally? I blog extensivly to hopefully reach people and up the awarness here in America, the sooner people reject this, the sooner we can make it clear to the rest of the world that this is not acceptable. I also donate to non-profit groups. What are you doing?

As I see it very little. I have read extensively Snigdha Ali whom I believe offers insight into your question. She writes,"At the same time, the feminists themselves have not been spared either.

I don't think there's much we can do for those women..Sad but true. Do you really think the people in those countries would listen if we tried to fight for those women's rights? No, they wouldn't.

I suppose it depends on that certain culture. Although I will work for equal rights across the board in my own culture and country, I don't understand other societies outside of my own to be able to "raise awareness" of the women's movement in their homes. It's ethnocentric and unfair to those cultures, if I don't... More

It's unbelievable to read so many peoples' response of "feminism isn't needed in these countries, human rights are," The rights of women in many countries do not exist, *because* they are women. Men are generally not in a situation where *because* they are men, they are murdered or beaten. There are very rare instances... More
