How do we help women in the Middle East?

Anti feminist men keep on complaining that feminists don't help women in 3rd world countries like the ones in the Middle East.

How do you propose we help them?

    What do you mean exactly by “helping”? By saying you want to help you imply that there’s something wrong when there clearly isn’t. It’s just cultural difference. 

    The only help needed here is you need to mind your own business and stop trying to taint other countries with your cringy social movement crap.

    There are many feminist organizations in the US, Canada, Australia and the EU who take in donations to help women in developing nations. There are Christian feminists trying to help Yazidis, legal guilds trying to help the plight of female lawyers in Pakistan and indigenous feminist groups working on issues like the Rohingya crisis. Do your own research and find out how to help if you so choose.

    They're not all oppressed. A lot of women in apparently oppressed societies are quite happy with their lives. Just because you do things differently in the USA or wherever doesn't mean that anyone who lives differently is oppressed.

    Only when we end the oppression of women in the U.S., will we be free to focus on other countries.

    By offering a superior example. By living a life of goodness, in our freedom.

    Boycotting goods made by these oppressive countries.  Asking our Sport Authorities to stop holding their sporting events in countries that oppress their civilians.  Ask our Governments to stop trading with countries that have poor human rights.  Stop wealthy Business men from buying up our British football Teams, if they are from an oppressive country, we shouldn't be relying on the money of corrupt countries, it's disgusting.

    I wouldn't advise anyone to travel to these countries to protest in marches, as most likely they'd be imprisoned on false 'spying' charges and murdered.

    first, it's gross you listen to anti-feminist men. second, the only way middle east women can HELP THEMSELVES is to stop giving birth to and raising boys. that's the only solution. but the majority are brainwashed. the majority exists in every demographic. for example, the majority of american women are either liberal or con (not feminist), and religious in some shape or form.

    There's a lot you could do. Like donating to charities, spreading information to people about what's happening, and listening to the women who are affected by this. (Did you know that in China, Uighur women are forcibly being married off to and raped by Chinese officials to "promote ethnic unity"? Did you know that in Iran, women who don't wear head coverings are often arrested and brutalized? Did you know that in 30 countries in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East female genital mutilation is a huge problem that has resulted in the death and severe dysfunction in about 200 million women? Did you know that Pakistan, Thailand, China, India, and Bangladesh together have around 8 million of victims of sex trafficking currently combined and 71% of those people are young girls? In America alone, there are about 50,000 cases currently as well. If you did, that's great! But a lot of Americans and otherwise are unaware.) Though there are /many/ problems with western feminism, being a well meaning feminist who genuinely wants to help people and stay informed is never a bad thing. Especially if you help American Middle Eastern women who have to deal with racism here. Hell you don't even have to be a feminist to care about this stuff: just be a caring human being and try to stay informed as best as you can.

    There should be economic sanctions against countries which have modesty laws for women, for example.

    Women in the Middle East are the property of the men.  In order to change that you are going to have to change their religion.  But we tried that a thousand years ago.
