International Women’s Day – at the service of international population control?

Suzanne Moore says that on this year’s International Women’s Day she does not ‘feel we have much to celebrate at all’, since ‘[i]n this country, up to three women a week during Covid have been killed by their partners or former partners. We live with this domestic terrorism. Rape convictions are at an all-time low. Globally women aged between 15 and 44 are at far more at risk of rape and domestic violence than from cancer, war, car accidents and malaria.’ She maintains: ‘The sad truth is that women’s rights were going backwards and Covid has pushed them further down. Women were more likely to work in shutdown sectors than men, more women were furloughed, women did most of the domestic work and homeschooling, many are using food banks and struggling to cope. Childcare is non-existent with nurseries and schools closed, so how are mothers supposed to work?’    


She also lambasts the Green Party, which like the Labour and Lib Dems has prioritised ‘trans’ rights, for its ‘absolute stupidity’ in ‘not making the obvious connection between promoting women’s rights and stopping climate change. It’s a no-brainer.’ She says the Green Party, ‘or any party that professes an interest in saving the planet – don’t they all?’ fail to see that ‘[w]hen women are educated and given access to contraception, life improves for everyone. They have fewer children and are the most vocal activists for cleaning up the environment.’ Having ‘witnessed this myself in Uganda, in India, in China and refugee camps all over the world’, she says the ‘ecology of the planet depends on women’s emancipation as well as our resourcefulness. That the Greens should not see this in order to mollify the gender fluid is simply pants.’


With all the enthusiasm of a 1970s Marxist campaigner extolling the equality potential of abortion on demand and 24-hour nurseries, it is surprising that Ms Moore can see all this so clearly while being unable to see that the modern feminist movement – itself a front for leftist ‘equality’ campaigners - has become a virtuous front for the population control movement, which would love to latch on to International Women’s Day to promote its agenda.


 Damaged by the eugenics programme of the Nazis, embarrassed by the failed prophecies of widespread famine and basic resources ‘running out’, and even more embarrassed by the forced sterilisation programme of Indira Gandhi, the population control movement has seized upon ‘choice’ as a cover for reducing the numbers of the poor - as our own Prime Minister made clear before he rose to political power.


And since the modern environmental movement, with its high-profile supporters making very public their support for curbing human births,

has its historical roots in the Malthusian movement, you would have to be very green indeed not to see that before very long, International Women’s Day will find itself serving as the handmaiden of international population control.
