Struggle for Women's Rights
Rich Gardner | 02.21.2012
We in the UFPJ-DVN are peaceniks, we think peaceful methods of resolving disagreements should always be our nation's first resort. We think resorts to military force should be way down the list of acceptable responses to these disagreements. That said, what is the appropriate way to view women serving in our armed forces?
Liz Trotta of Fox News feels that women should not be serving in the military at all. She feels that for male soldiers to rape their female fellow soldiers, their comrades-in-arms, is not so much an acceptable thing to do as it is an inevitable result of males living in close quarters with each other and of needing to be brutal towards the bad guys, the nation's enemies.

Save the Date!
On Weds. October 19, 2011 you can help Afghan women human rights workers who are targeted for harassment, injury and death. That night make a reservation and eat at the Kabul restaurant, 106 Chestnut Street. The owner of the Kabul restaurant, Mr. Wali has generously agreed to donate 20% of his proceeds on that day to The Afghan Women’s Survival Fund through Philly Code PINK.
Simply by going out to eat you can contribute to the survival of Afghan women and empower them in their own struggle for justice!
