Charmless Girl

Hello! I'm Rachel, I'm 19 and live just outside of Edinburgh. I like illustration, bus journeys and the sea.

In all the Western media craze over the young Pakistani activist Malala, there is a key point ignored about her: She is not only a Muslim feminist, she is a socialist with Marxist tendencies. In her own words: “I am convinced Socialism is the only answer and I urge all comrades to take this struggle to a victorious conclusion. Only this will free us from the chains of bigotry and exploitation.”

Gender equality not only liberates women but also men from prescribed gender stereotypes.
