Ornella Sukkar: The Contest of Feminist Doctrine—In the Need for a New Reading

4 mn read First of all, it is necessary to clarify the concept of feminism as a current concept within the women’s movement that seeks to develop a new understanding of women and demolish traditional differences in the social role of each of the sexes. In the second half of the twentieth century, feminism led to social and cultural changes in Western and Arab thought that affected social movements, morals, customs, and social traditions. This feminist renaissance viewed the sexual revolution and freedom as a revolution against the restrictions of virtue. This caused the encouragement of the demand for freedom of nationality and the codification of the freedom of homosexuality. It encompassed its civil and social conditions and portrayed women as a consumer sexual commodity to enhance and stimulate economic productivity in all literary fields, cinema, advertising, commercial advertising, and songs.

The Hong Kong Government banned flights from the UK for reasons of public health, due to a new strain of Coronavirus having been discovered in the UK. Despite Hongkongers having demanded that the Hong Kong Government close its borders in the beginning of 2020 in order to prevent the import of COVID-19 form Mainland China, after the virus was first reported in Wuhan, many are questioning why the Hong Kong Government now seems so eager to close its borders. Many of those questioning the Hong Kong Government’s motives take a rather cynical view of its actions, which, in a way, is understandable judging from the actions of the Hong Kong and Beijing Governments since the pro-democracy protests started in Hong Kong in June 2019.
