Liberal feminist have some explaining to do here in the United States. The rest of the feminist world seems to get a pass, as they evidently do object to Hijabs. I was born in 1970, in a period that was arguably the height of the feminist movement in the US. The founding of the National Organization for Women (NOW) occurred just a few years earlier, in 1966. In 1972, ultra feminist Rep. Shirley Chisholm created quite a stir when she ran for President with the slogan “Unbought and unbossed”. Chisholm was not the first woman to run for President but she was the first major-party radical feminist candidate for the nation’s highest office. Finally, there was the Supreme Court decision in 1973 which was hailed as the first major nationwide victory for feminist, Roe v Wade.
At the Miss America pageant in 1968, some 400 feminist protesters sought to have their complaints heard about how women were being objectified by these events. They came to show that wearing make-up, high heels, and yes, bras…were all devices intended to falsely identify them or to create “ludicrous beauty standards”. Although the event did not actually include any burning of bras or other objects, it never-the-less caught fire with many American women.
