It became a bit silly how feminism is always accompanied by criticizing men and how they oppress women. It is a fact that women are oppressed and discriminated against specially in third world countries.
To be specific, the Egyptian media always showed feminists in the figure of a strong woman who works while her husband takes care of the kids and the housework ending in her husband begging her to divorce him while she refuses to torture him. It is all based up on mirroring what happens in society but with the roles exchanged.
Going from the extreme to another extreme or the idea of an oppressed group oppressing another one is explainable. But, what the problem is that majority of the people rarely realizes that the whole feminism movement is supposedly against women and not men.
Yes, against women. If we went back tracing the roots of the problem which is the patriarchal society in Egypt, realizing that the ones keeping it this way are women is inevitable. Women are the ones raising men to act this way thus, the movement is supposedly against those women raising a girl teaching her to act as a maid for her brother or teaching her son to “look after” his older sister or technically spying on her etc…
I can remember my friend’s mother who once told me that “Female circumcision is dignifying for women as the woman won’t have the need for her husband so she won’t bother him or look for pleasure elsewhere”. The whole feminists’ movement should be against those kind of Egyptian women who are not seen in the media nor mentioned in opinion pieces. As far as I know, if we got to educate those women on how to raise kids on sexless basis, then we would eventually reach equality and the problem would be pretty much over.
