Hey ‘Ladies’: Put the ‘Nasty’ Hats Down, Here is What Real Feminism Looks Like

American women think they have something to complain about? Try being an Iranian woman who is refusing to wear or possibly forgets to place on her hijab.
Check out what the four brave women just did. It will make all those vagina hat wearers look pathetic.

In recent days, many so-called feminists have donned non-mandated hijabs, strapped on pussyhats and stepped into full-blown vagina costumes to allegedly push for gender (which I’m told is a social construct?) equality, all while patting themselves on the back for their supposed courage and activism.

But of course, protesting for Big Daddy Government to fund your birth control and the slaughter of your unborn baby, or wearing a piece of non-mandated religious garb in solidarity with women who are often mandated to wear it is not real feminism. At all.

By contrast, in an act of real feminism, at least four female chess players who have rightfully earned a stop at this year’s Women’s World Chess Championship held in Tehran, Iran—Carolina Lujan, Nazi Paikidze-Barnes, Irina Krush and Mariya Muzychuk—have courageously boycotted the event over the hijab mandate.

“Some consider a hijab part of culture,” wrote Paikidze, in a September Instagram post. “But, I know that a lot of Iranian women are bravely protesting this forced law daily and risking a lot by doing so. That’s why I will NOT wear a hijab and support women’s oppression.”

Women in Iran and other Muslim-majority countries where the hijab is a requirement by law can face severe punishment, such as acid attacks, for noncompliance.
