Christina Hoff Sommers has an important article in the Weekly Standard on the curious refusal of U.S. feminists to make the plight of women in Islamic societies a priority:

“[M]any feminists are tied up in knots by multiculturalism and find it very hard to pass judgment on non-Western cultures. They are far more comfortable finding fault with American society for minor inequities (the exclusion of women from the Augusta National Golf Club, the ‘underrepresentation’ of women on faculties of engineering) than criticizing heinous practices beyond our shores. The occasional feminist scholar who takes the women’s movement to task for neglecting the plight of foreigners is ignored or ruled out of order.”
