I think that is a great video and only one of the women in it showed she prefers women's rights.

I see they're as shrill and uninformed as some of the protesters in this country, and the anti-male eruption at the end was a nice touch.

She did get one revealing response: That's not a very PC question. Bingo!

Just a daft march full of students and left wingers, and this does not reflect the views of the vast majority of people.

Countries should be secular with laws and rights not based on any religion.

I don’t understand how someone could claim to be for the equality of women and follow a book that says a woman’s testimony is worth less than a man’s and also has instructions on how to beat your wife. It’s like being a gay person and being a Christian despite the Bible saying that gay people should be put to death.

I recently watched a HBO documentary called A Girl in the River A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015) - IMDb.

Unbelievable story of a young woman who was almost killed by her father and uncle for marrying the man she loved. It was such an eye opener to see how women are treated over the middle-east and their court system. Honor and respect have far more worth then a woman's life. Fascinating and heart breaking. I highly recommend everyone to see this. Makes you so appreciate living in America even with all it's faults.

It's not just Islam in America, we have that issue here also with many religions. The difference here is women have the choice because our government isn't ruled by religious law. We have religion in our country, but we aren't following the law of God as a country. They might be afraid to go against family and other people in their community so they do struggle. For those women who live by Sharia Law, it can be stifling. It's the law of the government. The women in N Korea also struggle but we can talk about it because it's not based on a religion so it doesn't bridge the P.C. river.

If the girl in the video said women's rights or Kim Jong-il they wouldn't have had a problem answering it.


Many women in America are forced to marry within their community. But, there are groups like this trying to help them.

I'm often confused when women say it's a choice for those in countries with Sharia Law. It's not. It's also an impossible situation similar to N. Korea and how they are required to bow and worship their leader. Not much we can do.

It's such a P.C. topic I doubt anyone will talk about it anymore, which is devastating for those trapped by it. We use to have groups trying to stop genital mutilation, and acid baths but not really an issue you can bring up anymore without getting a mouthful.

As we see by the video, religions have a scary influence on our society, even if you don't live there or adopt a religion. People have been successfully silenced, so not a lot to do about it.








Often discussed in whispers, the issue of female genital mutilation grabbed headlines last month when, for the first time, US prosecutors used a decades-old law that bans the practice to charge two Detroit-area doctors and a medical office manager in a case involving two 7-year-old girls. Now, several women in the United States who endured the procedure when they were young are sharing their stories -- all with elements that mirror the Michigan case -- in hopes of ending it for good.

While anti-cutting advocates hail efforts to hold offenders accountable, this case also raises questions about whether the accused -- all members of the Dawoodi Bohra sect of Shia Islam -- are being targeted because of their faith.

Being that this is not a choice American Women have to make the whole question is nothing more than fantasy.
