Is feminism a movement that aims to promote the interests of all women? Their actions over the last few decades, from the women's studies departments of academia to the halls of Congress, indicate that the answer is "no." In practice, the modern feminist movement is not a movement to promote freedom and equality for all women, no matter what their social, political, or religious beliefs may be. It operates as a rigid ideology dictating what women should think and how they should live. Although they might claim to speak for all women, many feminists have absolutely no interest in advocating for the majority of them. Instead, they aim to mold all women into loyal, obedient liberals who tow the establishment line. For all their caterwauling about "choice" and "women's rights," feminists fail to respect women's most important right of all: the right to think and act for ourselves.
