Meet the New Subversives
Editor’s note: The Left is adept at creating more foot soldiers for its misshapen legions. Their goal is the same as always: the destruction of the once hegemonic cultures of the West. The article presented below entitled “Meet The New Suffragettes” is set to appear in the February 2018 print issue of Vogue, high fashion’s flagship magazine. It is yet another bizarre battlefield in the ongoing culture war. The piece features an article and accompanying video that documents the purported trials and tribulations of politicians Stella Creasy and Sophie Walker, artist Gillian Wearing, webzine founder Liv Little, trans awareness campaigner Paris Lees, blogger Dina Torkia, and writer Reni Eddo-Lodge.
For a disparate group of women who all seem to claim privileged victimhood status, they have done quite well for themselves. There is a false equivalency being made between these women and the force-fed, hunger striking Suffragettes of one hundred years ago that gained partial enfranchisement for women in Britain by way of the Representation of the People Act 1918. We are living in an inverted reality whereby claims of victimhood status opens the gates to ever higher levels of privilege, which have ironically been made possible by the very nature of Western Civilization itself. Please enjoy this example of subversive Leftist self-satisfaction and self-deception. Mundilfury.

One hundred years since women were first granted the right to vote, a new kind of suffragist is rising. In the February issue of Vogue, Eva Wiseman meets seven influential females fighting to empower women in the battle for equality that rages on.
Politicians Stella Creasy and Sophie Walker join artist Gillian Wearing, gal-dem founder Liv Little, trans awareness campaigner and journalist Paris Lees, blogger Dina Torkia and writer Reni Eddo-Lodge for a unique portrait by Julia Hetta and a Vogue video in which they explain what equality means to them, the changes that would improve the lives of women and what the next hundred years will hold.
“There’s definitely a Mean Girls-style Burn Book in politics – patriarchy isn’t gendered – but the way we talk about other women is important," Labour MP Creasy tells Wiseman in the interview accompanying the portrait. "Women should be believed, because coming forward about harassment is hard. I see the pressure to close down the debates, to say systems are in place, but if so, they’re not working. I’m the anti-Sheryl Sandberg. For me, it’s not about leaning in, it’s about building an army. Progress can happen. My mistake was thinking that it would be easy… Women are set up to fail. We can never be thin, curvy, clever, kind enough. But I’m impatient to change the world.”
On her soon-to-be unveiled statue of Millicent Fawcett in Parliament Square - the first woman to stand on a pedestal there made by the first woman to create one - Wearing said: “Fawcett was all about dialogue. And it worked – she spent six decades getting women the vote. But it took a lot of work! The Guerrilla Girls campaigned, and people kept counting, compiling statistics over 10 years. Now Maria Balshaw is running the Tate, things should change further. The hard thing today is overcoming the psychology – this prejudice goes deep. We need to change people’s inner stereotypes of women. And, that’s harder than fighting for the vote.”
