If you are a woman, you'd better pack and leave our country now. You need to go somewhere where a woman can find real prosperity, opportunity, security, and respect.
Elite academics at Harvard University and elsewhere say that you need to go to Pakistan. Or Kazakhstan. For pure health reasons, you should go to Uganda. Never mind that pesky civil war.
Griffith explains in his article posted on Breitbart:
Let’s look at Economic Participation and Opportunity first. The United States ranks 8th worldwide—behind models of productivity Mongolia and the Bahamas. How did Mongolia earn 1st place although 39% of its population lives in poverty and its GDP per capita ranks 154th? The subcategories used to determine the rank don’t favor the United States. For instance, the United States ranks 55th place in the female: male labor force participation ratio. Ghana finishes first in this category, even with its meager $3,100 per capita GDP. The United States fares even worse, 61st place, in the “wage equality” subcategory—finishing behind Zambia, Guyana, Kazakhstan, and Kenya. Keep in mind, per capita GDP in Kenya is just $1,700 a year—compared to $48,300 in the US. The report fails to mention exactly which policies of Zambia Kazakhstan, or Kenya should be adopted by the US.
The erudite purveyors of pomposity who are good at cooking up studies offer no clear answers on why women in America should envy their counterparts in the Third World. Griffith went on to discuss education:
Although the United States managed to tie for 1st in the
Educational Attainment category, it’s no thanks to our literacy rate! A
99% literacy rate for both females and males in the United States only
earned the US a ranking of 21st. Contrast this dismal performance with 2nd
place Jamaica—where just 91% of females, but just 82% of males, are
literate. Does something seem off here? Women attain lower literacy
rates in Jamaica compared to the United States—yet rank higher on the
literary subcategory? Which Jamaican educational policies should we
follow here in the United States to remedy THIS situation of nearly
universal literacy? Should Jamaica really rank higher on literacy even
though the literacy rate in the United States is significantly greater?
Griffith's article has provided further evidence that so-called studies from the academic world should continue to be reviewed and questioned by a skeptical media, not simply accepted as offerings from a higher intelligence to the masses. And they also ignore the fact that one region of Pakistan alone reported 3,100 atrocities against women. Also child marriage, acid attack, honor killings, and other barbaric practices are prevalent in Pakistan and most other countries in the region.
The academics' foolish anti-American tantrum passed off as a scientific study not only childishly bashes the United States, it also undermines attempts to change the culture and better the lives of women who truly do suffer in silence in large parts of the Third World.
