Individually the ladies of this real-life League of Extraordinary Women have all been featured over the years here on Balladeer’s Blog. Each one of them has more courage than all of the make-believe feminists whining about “microaggressions” and “safe spaces” on college campuses across America.
These ladies face REAL danger from REAL oppressors of women.
*** WAFA SULTAN is an author and activist against Islamofascism. She writes first-hand about the barbaric and systematically demeaning treatment that women in the Muslim world are subjected to.
