‘Victimhood narrative’ taught in schools fuels anxiety in young women, academic claims

The “victimhood narrative” that is being taught at schools and universities is fuelling anxiety in young women, an academic has argued in her new book.

Doctrines of “everyday sexism” are “rape culture” are having a “debilitating” effect on girls’ confidence, according to Dr Joanna Williams, a lecturer in higher education at Kent University.

Institutions which should be promoting women’s rights – such as schools, universities and feminist campaigners – are now doing more harm than good, she argues.

    I’m confused. Is she saying the mentally ill should no longer be permitted to occupy the top slots in the education industry?

    • Heresy!

      Poor thing, she is not long for her academic career. She should get ready to find a new profession- one where truth and keen observation of fact are still considered acceptable.

    the left will finally get their desired “rape culture” once their plan to colonize the west with muslims is complete

    • They never seem able to put 2 and 2 together.

      But still, you kinda have to give the ‘Planners’ credit for seeing just how stupid and malleable the average person is before the rest of us ever did…

      I guess not being megalomaniacal bastards makes us naive… 🙁

    How ironic that this sort of thinking is actually setting women back over a century, back to the Victorian era, the age of “the vapours” and female hysteria.

  • That is exactly the point.

    This is an industry.
