A drive-by comment on feminism

Just on NPR yesterday I heard that at a recent summit of Asian leaders, they concluded that women were “a great untapped resource” and they would do more to promote them entering the workforce, for the betterment of the economy and the nation. Abandon their children to submit to the same dehumanization that men have bowed to themselves? What a terrible idea.

To the degree that the feminist movement has fought against the oppression of women, it has been highly beneficial and valuable. However, to the degree that feminism has demanded to become a “resource” and enter into the same dehumanization that men have endured during the modern age, it is lot liberating women but rather putting them in newly forged chains. They have traded their subjectivity to their husbands for the subjectivity of a host of men who care not about them even one bit.
