Supporting Torture and Deportation Isn’t Feminist

Last week, in response to a growing argument by the left that ICE should be defunded and abolished, in the wake of its persistent and systemic human rights abuse, Democrat senator Kamala Harris stepped up to the plate to defend the agency’s existence. Meanwhile, her counterpart, Dianne Feinstein, was busy defending another institution responsible for flagrant human rights abuse: the C.I.A., and specifically, its new director, Gina Haspel, who she described as “a good deputy director.”

Why Liberal Feminism Must Embrace The Cause To #FreeAhedTamimi

Last month, teenage Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi was arrested by the Israeli Defense Forces in a night raid in illegally occupied Palestine.  The circumstances of her arrest and the human rights abuse she faces are horrifying, but liberal feminists from the West are mysteriously silent about her cause.

No, Sen. Collins, You Don’t Get To Cry Sexism After Destroying So Many Women’s Lives
