The New York Times notes the odd bedfellows that are created by the war on terror. They criticize David Horowitz for opportunistically using the issue to promote US intervention while other, supposedly right thinking feminists, look at the issue as one calling for more UN involvement. But the more important point may be that on this issue the division in our society on feminism are just trivial compared to the issues faced in some Muslim countries. Whatever your stand is on Title IX you are, as an American, likely to find the idea of throwing acid in girls faces for the crime of going to school somewhat repulsive.
