She Is Woman, Hear Her Roar

I've met the lady who runs Big Blue Wave; I can say that she is one of the most unlikely people to strike fear and terror in the hearts of the establishment.

Yet her campaign to pressure the federal government to shut down funding to the National Action Committee on the Status of Women is causing many an MSM reporterette and feminist blogger to break down in hysterics at the thought.

One wonders what exactly SOW has been doing with its $23 million a year to improve the lot of Canadian women. The only women's lot who have been improved, it seems, would be those who work for SOW and get grant money from it.

If SOW were to close up shop tomorrow, would women be forced en masse back into the kitchen to cook, clean, and breed? Would their rights to vote and hold property in their own name be taken away? Would they never be permitted to hold a thought of their own without their husbands' or fathers' permission?

What has SOW done for women lately except to advocate policies that treat women as the helpless weaklings or sexual playthings things SOW claims that they aren't?

Well done, Suzanne.

You, a supposedly downtrodden housewife, have shown yourself to be a stronger and more independent woman than the feminists who wring their hands and weep at the threat of losing their government sugar daddy.

Thank you so kindly. But it's not NAC that's the problem-- it's SOW--SOW is a federally funded government department. NAC is a coalition of women's groups.

Simple solution SOW... stop discriminating when it comes to funding requests.

Just to let you know, your link to Audra Williams' blog isn't working, you've included an 'f' in front of the 'http://.'

Oh, and in case you didn't see it: an AP story quoted you on the weekend.

I completely agree with this viewpoint. I've had my own experiences with the 'so called pro women pseudofeminists who are part of the Status of Women. In particular in Newfoundland. To illustrate this, one of the recently appointed board members to the Newfoundland and Labrador Advisory Council to the Status of Women is a lawyer who represents wife beaters and on record has said that, and I quote " I wouldn't call bruises on your arms a beating'. This person now has access to the personal files of any woman in the domestic violence shelter in St. John's. To say that this woman is a danger is an understatement. Yes, they should dismantle the Status of Women. NOW. These women are in it for the money honey. Period.
