Where Women's Rights, Islam, and Nature Collide


Did you know that the National Park Service (NPS) is now in the business of promoting Islam? Or more specifically, promoting the wonder that is women's rights under sharia law? Check out these videos they recently produced.

Not that this is the main point, but the NPS was supposed to be hit hard by sequester cuts. It's truly amazing they found the funds to create such videos. That is, of course, in addition to the bigger question of why they are in the business of promoting sharia law in the first place, sequester cuts, or not.

So what does the park service have to do with women's rights? And why in the world is the park service shilling for Islam?

Here's how the NPS explains it.

The Women's Rights National Historical Park tells the history of the women's rights movement by "focusing on the significance of the first Women's Rights Convention in 1848," and continues to focus on the challenges the civil rights movement faces today, according to its website.

"Women's Rights National Historical Park also recognizes the efforts of other groups around the world, who work to achieve equality for all people," the website says. "In an effort to highlight these struggles for rights, Women's Rights National Historical Park created a video series to recognize the efforts of citizens to change the world in which they live."

Hm. OK. I get it now.

There's a specific park named in honor of women's rights. And they, at the park service, wanted to document efforts of great people who have helped to advance women's rights.

No.

It's even more than that.

They wanted to create a video to showcase citizens who are working to change the world.

OK. I really get it now.

So these young children who they interview in the videos are part of efforts to change the world.

Indeed.
