The Good News

... is that Ophelia Benson's hard work is getting wider notice, as more and more people discover Melanie Butler's moronic take on things!
Here she is on a disgraceful effort by the Cambridge Review of International Affairs to turn a defence of the men who abuse women into a left-wing cause, by denigrating the efforts of Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan, a feminist group which tries to give Afghan girls education, healthcare and the right not to be forced into “marriage” before they are 16 (as half Afghan girls are).
I feel a bit sorry for Melanie but she really ought to have applied the mildest critical brain element to what her supervisors were feeding her.
