Sweden’s “Feminist Foreign Policy” Ends with Apology to Saudi Arabia

Feminism, as usual, ends at the Muslim line.

…Sweden’s government announced a “feminist” foreign policy when it took power in September.

Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstroem criticized policies affecting women, who cannot drive cars and need permission from a male guardian for many decisions.

The response from Arab nations was swift. Wallström’s invitation to address a meeting of the Arab League in Cairo on March 9 was canceled. In protest, Saudi Arabia and the UAE recalled their ambassadors from Sweden. Moreover, Saudi Arabia notified Sweden that it has stopped issuing business visas to Swedish nationals and companies, a move that Sweden fears other Arab states will follow…

    Feminists capitulate…then grovel.
    Muslim women are abandoned to ongoing repression. The suffragettes of the West had to invent themselves. Western Feminists haven’t figured out the Muslim game yet. Whatever women say, VEILING IS A THREAT TO WOMEN.

      Western women don’t have to figure out the Muslim game. They instinctively know the strong horse when they see it.

    The Swedish elites are such total hypocrites when their “principles” suddenly threaten to cramp their usual tollgating of the assorted international trade gravy trains being run to the satisfaction of the world’s worst despots.

    It was situations like this that forced feminists to invent cultural imperialism . Now, any feminist can ignore extreme oppression of women yet pat themselves on the back for avoiding the deadly sin of cultural imperialism. then focus on stripping any remaining due process from Western men.

        No just the usual tripe about a 23 year old girl making several thousand dollars a month on line. I flagged it, but I really enjoy sending a rude return, the up voter is usually the poster

          Classmates sent me spam a few months ago.
          I told them to fuck off and take me off their list.
          They did.
          Their response was something like ‘Whoa dude, chill.’

    Liberal elites will happily throw women’s rights and freedom under the bus when a Muslim oil producer says Boo.

    I criticize Ayaan Hirsi Ali for being a silly immigration advocate, but she at least is out there telling the truth about the Religion of Piggymen.

    • marty

      One way or another the 21st century idea of “women’s rights” IS getting thrown under the bus. Hopefully (but highly unlikely!!) Sweden serves as a canary in the coal mine.

  • Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstroem had an opportunity to stand up for freedom. All she had to do was stand up to Saudi money and continue telling the truth.

    But like all liberals, she caved in to PC sensibilities. It is more important for her to placate Muslims that it is to deal with REAL discrimination against women in Muslim countries.

    You had your chance MS Wallstroem. You failed miserably.

    Go have your son try on a dress. When the Muslims in Malmo spill out to the rest of Sweden, you will be in a burqa and your eunuch men will be dead.
