Want to know how cultural imperialism works? Check out the game plan, conveniently laid out in a colorful infographic.
You can make cultural imperialism so much more palatable by calling it “women’s empowerment.” Because Western women are empowered of course! The rest of the world’s women are under the yoke of oppression and are too stupid and feeble to realize it, let alone do anything about it. Thank God Western women are so beneficent and want to spread their brand of freedom and equality to all those poor ladies around the globe. Never mind the fact that Western women are suffering from epidemic levels of depression and loneliness and increasingly are of the opinion that the women’s movement and feminism have failed them. We need to export this kool-aid all over the world! Misery loves company, I guess.
Bonus: How many pictures of hijabi women can you find on the site? Any doubt which women they consider most in need of their “social movement”?
