A Rape Survivor Just Won the Nobel Peace Prize. ‘Feminists’ Are Nowhere to Be Found.

Excerpt:

 

As feminists were busy peddling their “War on Women” narrative in the U.S., Yazidi sex slave survivor Nadia Murad was honored with the Nobel Peace Prize for fighting a real War on Women in the Middle East.

 

Nadia was honored for her efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war, together with Dr. Denis Mukwege of the Democratic Republic of Congo, who has been a relentless healer and advocate for women.

 

Their stories serve as an important reminder that as American women debate what constitutes enough evidence to block a nominee from taking a seat on the Supreme Court, corroboration and evidence are abundant in places such as northern Iraq, where hundreds of women and girls are still enslaved and routinely subjected to rape.

 

Nadia was abducted in northern Iraq in August 2014, when ISIS took over her village. Militants gave the Yazidi people—a Kurdish and Arabic-speaking religious minority—two choices: Convert to Islam or die. Refusing to give in, Nadia watched men get massacred and family members march to their graves.

 

At just 21 years old, she was kidnapped alongside an estimated 3,000 other Yazidi women and girls, traded as sex slaves from one ISIS fighter to another. She was forced to pray, dress up, and apply makeup in preparation for her rape, which was often committed by gangs.

 

While any comparison between Nadia’s story and the accusations leveled against newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh would be completely unfair, it is fair to wonder how news of uncorroborated allegations of gang rape brought by porn lawyer Michael Avenatti can overshadow a gang rape survivor-turned-women’s advocate being honored with the most prestigious award in the world.

 

For years, it seemed the world didn’t care about Nadia’s story and the thousands of others like it. It took two years for then-Secretary of State John Kerry to declare crimes against Yazidis, Christians, and Shiite Muslims genocide, and the United Nations as well.

 

Thousands of Yazidis remain missing, including at least 1,300 women and children, and the question of how to hold ISIS accountable for its unspeakable crimes remains unanswered.

 

Nadia is a lonely voice in the fight against ISIS genocide. After making the genocide designation, the Obama administration did little to hold ISIS accountable for its crimes or to alleviate the suffering of survivors. The Trump administration is trying to right those wrongs by providing aid to the most vulnerable victims of ISIS genocide, but a lot of work remains to be done.

 

“The world should bear its moral and legal responsibility and ensure its proper and fair accountability,” Nadia said as she accepted her Nobel Peace Prize. “The sexual violence and conflicts in our towns and cities must be stopped.”

 

It’s strange how women who self-identify as feminists get so worked up over unsubstantiated allegations of sexual assault, yet so callously overlook human rights injustices staring them in the face.

 

Imagine the difference these “feminists” could make if, in addition to banging on the doors of the U.S. Supreme Court, they also took a few minutes to bang at the doors of the United Nations.

She has not been ignored by feminists. What a bunch of crap.

 

It is possible to speak out on multiple issues at once.. Does the pillaging of the Yazidi women mean that women who object to sexual harrasment right here are just whining about nothing?

To put it simply, it's who has had to deal with more but yet has not received anything even close to the same amount of attention.

Tell ya' what though, I can guarantee you these woman have a whole different definition of Sexual Harassment vs how anyone here would define it.

Actually; no. I think the reason she has been ignored by the leftist/feminist movement is because she didn't sit back and play the victim card. She stood tall and proud and, let's face it, there was nothing for the feminists to gain by supporting and celebrating her. Unfortunately, the leftists want everyone to celebrate victimhood and revel in being a victim as though there is some sort of virtue to being a victim. Leftist women want to brag about how strong and tough they are, but when someone questions them on anything, they immediately play the victim card and all the big meanies want to take away women's rights, blah, blah, blah.

 

You can't have it both ways. You want to claim the big kid sandbox, then don't act like a victim when you don't automatically get your way.

This woman has not been ignored by the left, womens groups, or media your side considers ‘leftist’. This article is BS.

Nope, it's perspective and making people understand and actually think about what they believe is an offense vs what others who have had it much much worse. Problem is that some people refuse to not be a victim, meaning that they will take offense when none was intended or be offended just because they want the attention, the status or use it for advancement or revenge. It's a lot like a Female Commander being offended by posters when she goes into the rooms of Male Soldiers. Instead of her superiors saying look, we are in the business of killing people and blowing sh$t up, we deal in blood, guts, and body parts. If this is enough to offend you, you have absolutely no business in this job. Either toughen up some or get the hell out.

 

But instead those young Soldiers are told they need to remove the posters because the females are offended. At the same time a Male Commander walking into a female soldiers room seeing a poster of a man wouldn't say a damn thing. In part because he doesn't care and in part because he realizes if this offends him he is in the wrong line of work.

 

Yes, there is a line, but that line is also dependent on the job, situation, intent of the other person, and so on.

I have served with Women who where some of the toughest S.O.B.'s you'd ever meet. Offend them? Hell, they where offended when you weren't cutting lose and being yourself. They where some of the rudest, crudest, nastiest sons a b$tches I'd ever met. We didn't have to worry about a thing in there presence. Not only did this NOT KILL MORAL we knew we could count on them should the sh$t hit the fan.

 

Some people need to toughen up and grow a thicker skin. You wanna' live your life perpetually bothered and offended, go ahead, just don't drag me down because I notice a nice a body and am not afraid to simply be a man.

Let's see everyone knows the name of the Supreme Court Justice Bret Kavenaugh accuser. They still remember the name Anita Hill, but yet I haven't seen this brave woman telling her story much until know.

Meh. I searched three pages of google “feminist groups support Nadia Murad” and found articles about her winning the Nobel, but as for any notoriety before that I saw an article in Glamour, one in Cosmo but not much in the way of support from women’s groups like NOW, etc.

 

Maybe more out there, but no time to look. I will say this, however. The bimboes who showed up against Kavanaugh were a great deal more vocal about their outrage against the thin accusations against him than the real life threatening events that Ms. Murad endured.

 

The rest of the world must think we are a bunch of sheltered idiots over here.
