You published a Washington Post column titled "It's Time to Rethink Feminism," in which the authors suggested that leaders of the feminist movement need to reassess the global threats to women by working with pro-democracy forces around the world to liberate humanity from all the forms of tyranny and slavery.

What the authors don't realize is that the feminist movement has never had anything at all to do with feminism. Instead it is all about liberalism. If the feminist movement were about protecting the humanity and dignity of women, the leaders would not have ignored the shameful escapades of Bill Clinton, and they would have honored a few women who were outstanding leaders but not political activists, such as Margaret Thatcher, Barbara Bush or Mother Teresa.
