The Left often argues that they support women’s rights and tend to push the feminist agenda. Segregation of men and women definitely goes against feministic ideals. In the United Kingdom, The UK Labour Party have been found at a Party gathering at a Muslim Community Centre, segregating men and women. Men on one side, women on the other. The question I’d like to know is, why? And where are the feminists??
The UK Labour Party have championed open immigration as part of their platform for winning elections post the Thatcher-era in efforts to keep the Tories out of power. They have admitted that they wanted mass immigration to make UK more multicultural thus in return those from ethnic backgrounds would likely to vote for Labour over the Conservatives.
In Australia for instance, electorates that have high number of immigrants from the Middle East such as Auburn, Bankstown and Lakemba all favour the Labor Party over the conservative Liberal Party.
Ed Milliband, UK Labour Leader has recently declared that if he becomes Prime Minister he will make Islamophobia illegal, despite tough legislation already in place for discrimination.
One can only assume the reason for the segregation is that the UK Labour Party is pandering to the Islamic vote. If the UK Labour Party wants to do this, then so be it, but they should not give themselves self-praise for tackling sexism. The feminist movement also needs to come out and attack the UK Labour Party and distance themselves from Ed Milliband.
If the UK Labour Party wins Government on 7th May 2015 and Ed Milliband becomes Prime Minister, what will the UK become? Will segregation be the norm? Will women lose their rights? They aren’t painting a pretty picture.
