The war on women (Communist Cuba version)

(My new American Thinker post)

The ladies in white, or “Las Damas en Blanco”, are women who march every Sunday after mass or other services.  They’ve drawn international attention because they are peaceful and simply want freedom in Cuba, or the release of their husbands, sons or brothers from political prisons.

Over the years, they’ve been harassed by communist thugs and pushed around.  But they keep on marching every Sunday.

We just got news that some of the ladies have been arrested, according to Capitol Hill Cubans (via Babalu):

“Over 45 Ladies in White were arrested as they tried to meet at their headquarters on Neptuno Street in Havana.

“Dozens of others were intercepted and turned away as they made their way to the meeting.

“The group holds monthly meetings, known as “literary teas,” which are heavily repressed by the Castro regime.”

Frankly, the regime is scared to death of these ladies.  It’s hard to blame a bunch of peaceful ladies as CIA agents.  The ladies are also seen by tourists who Tweet or send their pictures out of the country.

To my knowledge, no one in the US feminist movement has publicly supported these brave ladies.

We don’t know why feminists don’t support “Las Damas en Blanco”.

We do know that these ladies are one courageous group of women.
