The women’s rights movement has now proven to be the most destructive force on the face of the earth. Before 1920, feminists made promises and based their arguments on things for which they have never been held accountable, nor produced. To the contrary, their actions have brought the opposite results. Let us therefore grade feminism and see how it has fared. We will break down their claims into six areas:
Prohibition was actively supported by women’s temperance efforts, including the diligent work of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. In fact, Prohibition (the Eighteenth Amendment) and women’s suffrage (the Nineteenth Amendment) both came into effect the same year—1920. Companion Prohibition was the first real indicator of the results that would follow from the women’s rights movement. Instead of reducing problems associated with alcohol, Prohibition only increased them. Now, we see in like regard that women’s suffrage has produced the same destructive results.
Therefore, their grade for Prohibition: F
Women promised that if they had the right to vote, they would improve government. A report from John R. Lott and Dr. Larry Kenny of the University of Chicago School of Law titled, How Dramatically Did Women’s Suffrage Change the Size and Scope of Government?, reveals that as soon as women received the right to vote, government immediately launched into a skyrocketing course of burgeoning growth in size and costs. This was equally evidenced when feminist Democrats began the War on the Black Family with its Great Society. The only thing that was great about it has been its price tag and the great ill effects on the poor, particularly poor blacks.
Also, no longer do we have the patriarchal government we were given by our forefathers when this nation was founded, but more and more it has become cursed matriarchy. And because the line of distinction between men and women has been erased, this has created a confusion of the sexes. Likewise, our courts have leveled a fatal attack on the family with a legal system that encourages divorce and penalizes the husband/father. Our government is now feminized to our detriment, and presently threatens to collapse our economy.
Therefore, their grade for improving government: F
The ill effects of feminism on society are breathtaking! Welfare has effected a direct attack on the black man. Suicide has dramatically increased among young men. Whereas in 1920 a young male was slightly more likely to commit suicide, since then those rates increased to a staggering six times greater likelihood. Conversely, high school graduation rates, especially for males, have dramatically fallen—to as low as 25 percent in some larger cities. And the college entrance ratio for males is at an all-time low, now less than that of women. Our feminized education system, now comprised of 75 percent women teachers and administrators, has thereby deteriorated to where it is recognized as being obsolete and in a state of crisis.
Ever since the 1800s when women began to receive equal property rights and divorce rights, divorce rates have dramatically increased to now over 50 percent, with women filing 75 percent of all divorces. And with these increases have come the destruction of the family and the children and the men. The feminist’s intent to erase the line of distinction between the sexes has demoralized and confused our young men, with the added outcome of rampant homosexuality. And in accordance with the curse of the woman in the original Garden wherein she desires the place of the man (Genesis 3:16), women furthermore now dress like men and cut their hair like men.
Because of the destruction of the home due to feminism, crime and the use of illegal drugs have substantially increased. Peace and safety and supporting examples in the home have all deleteriously eroded. Conclusively, we have become morally bankrupt since patriarchal family-supporting government has been abandoned for family-destroying matriarchy.
Therefore, their grade for improving society: F
Susan B. Anthony, the predominant leader in the women’s rights movement, declared concerning abortion: “Guilty? Yes. No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed.” Elizabeth Cady Stanton said concerning abortion, “[I]t is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit,” and called abortion a “crying evil.” Furthermore, she stated that the “remedy [for this] crying evil” was “the complete enfranchisement and elevation of women.” So how have they fared in effecting their remedy? Directly because of women’s rights, 3,500 babies are now killed every single day. This is equivalent to having a 9-11 every day, with an additional 500 casualties! Indeed, guilty is the women’s rights movement.
Therefore, their grade for stopping abortion: F
One of the arguments of the women’s rights movement was that if women were allowed to enter into politics, war would cease; for women would not send their children into war. Obviously, there has been no reduction of war since 1920. In fact, every year the number of fatalities in the War on the Womb equals our nation’s fatalities from all wars from the American Revolution to today!
Therefore, their grade for stopping war: F
Women claimed that they needed to vote in order to secure “home protection”? Did they indeed protect the home by gaining the right to vote? How can anyone expect the home to have improved when the woman has abandoned both her place and the home? In the 1870s, Mrs. Annie Wittenmyer, president of the largest women’s organization of that day, stated that giving women the right to vote would “strike a fatal blow at the home.” Her warning has now become a shameful and egregious reality. The home is being destroyed because of several factors, including a feminized judicial system and its laws. But what is particularly destructive is that the woman has abandoned her place, rejected the man, rejected God’s government, and rebelliously taken a place in governing that belongs solely to the man.
The black widow spider which devours her mate has spun her web and lives at his expense. Today, only half of America’s households are traditional two-parent families, and many of those are not even both biological parents. The divorce rate is now over 50 percent, out-of-wedlock births are nine times greater than what they were in 1950, and the marriage rate is half of what it was as recent as 1970. Because of women’s rights, the home is now a tragic disaster!
Therefore, their grade for protecting the home: F
Clearly, the Eveonian women’s rights movement receives failing grades on all counts, and society, government, the family, the man, our children, motherhood, moral values, and our nation are all fatalities from it. Even as it is written in the Bible that the woman leavened the three pecks of flower, so Eveonian women’s rights has thoroughly leavened this nation with the effects of its corruption and ruin.
The women’s rights movement has had far-reaching, devastating effects, evidenced by everything we have considered here, and more! It is easy to gloss over things and ignore the consequences, but the tragic and revealing effects of almost ninety years of this curse of feminism cannot be ignored.
Likewise, it must be recognized and admitted that all of these grave ills are but symptoms—the fruit of a root that thus far has not been recognized or acknowledged or dealt with. This root goes all the way back to the original Garden of Eden where the woman ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and was thereby cursed: “Your desire will be for [the place of] your husband” (Genesis 3:16). Today, that curse is never more a fulfilled reality. Failure to recognize this egregious error and deal with it leaves the source of all these out-of-control destructive ills unchecked—the Eveonian women’s rights movement.
