Pat Robertson’s ‘Feminist Agenda’ and the real agenda behind feminism

I was asked recently about the story behind the title of my blog, was it just a random stab of inspiration, does it have any meaning behind just the word ‘feminism’, and I thought I would answer that query here, and give my readers a little piece of knowledge at the same time.

The term ‘The Feminist Agenda’ (in the case of my blog title) is derived from a quote written by television evangelist Pat Robertson, who, in opposition to an equal rights amendment to the Iowa Constitution, stated that;

“it [the feminist agenda] is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”

Essentially, the title of my blog aims to take a sarcastic stab at Robertson’s statement, and instead reinforce the actual feminist agenda; equal rights and opportunities for all.
