“Traditional, cultural practices that assert male authority will always disadvantage women. So why do we kow-tow to them?” Virginia Haussegger states in the Intelligence Squared: Feminism Has Failed. She argues for the affirmative in this debate, pointing out that despite the progress feminism has made she believes there is a “global war against women” fought on the “battleground of a woman’s body”. While feminism may have helped women in developed nations, many of the world’s women remain trapped in patriarchy.
