România Liberă, de la Cristian Câmpeanu la Naomi Wolf

„Dar viziunea guvernului lui Cameron este mult mai sinistră decât vechea tactică a dreptei, care ţintea disciplinele ce puteau fi criticate ca decadente. Reducerile britanice dezvăluie o tendinţă a ţărilor dezvoltate – una ce a început în America – de a ţinti genurile de educaţie care conduc spre o societate civilă viguroasă şi o populaţie care este greu de suprimat.”

„Pe de altă parte, o mişcare aparent lăudabilă care a făcut o petiţie pentru a restabili valorile constituţionale la nivel naţional s-a dovedit a fi o încercare de a introduce valorile creştine în legislaţia de stat.”

Şi încă una din Naomi Wolf (Behind the veil lives a thriving Muslim sexuality):

„The West interprets veiling as repression of women and suppression of their sexuality. But when I travelled in Muslim countries and was invited to join a discussion in women-only settings within Muslim homes, I learned that Muslim attitudes toward women’s appearance and sexuality are not rooted in repression, but in a strong sense of public versus private, of what is due to God and what is due to one’s husband. It is not that Islam suppresses sexuality, but that it embodies a strongly developed sense of its appropriate channelling – toward marriage, the bonds that sustain family life, and the attachment that secures a home. […] Indeed, many Muslim women I spoke with did not feel at all subjugated by the chador or the headscarf. On the contrary, they felt liberated from what they experienced as the intrusive, commodifying, basely sexualising Western gaze. Many women said something like this: „When I wear Western clothes, men stare at me, objectify me, or I am always measuring myself against the standards of models in magazines, which are hard to live up to – and even harder as you get older, not to mention how tiring it can be to be on display all the time. When I wear my headscarf or chador, people relate to me as an individual, not an object; I feel respected.” This may not be expressed in a traditional Western feminist set of images, but it is a recognisably Western feminist set of feelings.”

Naomi Wolf (born November 12, 1962) is an American author and political consultant. With the publication of The Beauty Myth, she became a leading spokesperson of what was later described as the third wave of the feminist movement. She remains an advocate of feminist causes and progressive politics, with a more recent emphasis on arguing that there has been a deterioration of democratic institutions in the United States. (wikipedia)
