Mr Mirek Topolánek, the Czech prime minister, gave a speech at the opening of the European Year of Equal Opportunities. He said that because women can decide whether they want to have children or not, they have the same opportunities as men. He also mentioned that assimilation of foreigners is more beneficial than multiculturalism.
The European Women's Lobby (EWL), an umbrella organization for four thousand European feminist organizations, demanded an apology. They also wrote Mr Vladimír Špidla, a former prime minister and the current European commissioner for welfare. They complained that even though Špidla was present when Topolánek gave the speech, he failed to vomit. ;-)
The difference between Harvard University and the Czech Republic, however, is that the Czechs - both men and women - agree with the prime minister and they will send an unpublishable F. O. greeting to the 4,000 NGOs. The news about the feminist demands have appeared in the media once or twice and they will probably never appear again. And I think that after this self-humiliation of these ludicrous feminist NGOs, they will be more careful next time before they try to dictate someone what he should think about the role of the gender in the society.
