Do feminists ever realize that it is impossible to spread feminism in Middle East & Eastern Europe?

Eastern Orthodox Church of Russia and the Middle Eastern countries are very resistant to feminism. Putin, Saudi King and all other Middle Eastern & East European governments won't even allow feminism. Look at these countries, there is not a single drop of feminism there.

I think it would be very painful for Western feminists.

    I’m sure they know that some places are very backwards, yes.

    "Do feminists ever realize that it is impossible to spread feminism in Middle East & Eastern Europe?"

    Well ... Do you think that they allow MGTOW in these Middle Eastern countries?  Or even any human rights groups that might test the authority of the state or kingdom?

    The truth is, that ANY gathering of ideology is potentially subversive to authoritarian rule.  It's not just feminism.  But speaking of feminism and any complementary male groups, those are not allowed because EVERYONE (both men and women) in these nations are forced into their roles for the good of their society.

    It's been well known for centuries now that too much Liberalism and loosening of morals are what brings down empires.  More cohesive and controlled society are stronger and can take over others to either rule over them, or become the dominant power.  And regarding declining powers, it always goes the same way.  A little bit of Liberalism is loved by all and society thrives even more for a short time.  Eventually though, those that are born into that society seek more Liberalism.  And the cycle goes on until we have the end of Rome, or as we see here in the West, the rapid decline of morals and social cohesion, with an impending feeling that the end is always near.

    I suggest you ignore the emotional talking points and accept observable reality... Saudi aribia, for instance, is becoming feminist.

    ... They just keep it hush hushed.

    Feminism is making progress in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia allowed women to vote for the first time in 2015.

    A long long long time ago, the Middle East was the center of the world. Jews, non believers, Christians, everyone was welcome there without prejudice. They all worked together as equals in a society where they invented things like mathematics, navigation using the constellations, engineering, biology, medicine, etc.. Then one day, a man named Imam Hamid al-Ghazah brought his religion into the mix and it spread by force, forbidding things like mathematics, equal rights, and whatever. That was the end for the middle east’s contributions to science and equality and education. The only way things like equal rights will ever happen there again is when religions that force oppression are finally thrown in the garbage where it belongs. And it’ll happen one day. There are thousands of dead religions. Even Christianity will be gone some day. Until religion is a distant memory, equality will never truly happen.

    I don’t think people are trying to spread their ideas like a disease. If you are speaking about female empowerment, then yeah they are in for a let down out there. It’s engraved in their culture that you have to be all covered up and stuff I believe.
