The “Gender Dimension” of Mass Migration into Europe

The priorities of the Austrian Presidency of the EU Council of Ministers were presented in a series of meetings in the European Parliament last week. On Tuesday Chancellery Minister Juliane Bogner-Strauss presented the presidency’s priorities to the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM).

Below is the relevant snip from the press releases of the European Parliament posted last week:

Women’s Rights and Gender Equality: raising awareness among young Europeans

On Tuesday, Juliane Bogner-Strauβ, Federal Minister within the Chancellery for Women, Families and Youth, told Women’s Rights MEPs that gender equality was at the top of Presidency’s priorities. A conference on the future of gender equality will be held in Vienna in October, with a focus on youth, as well as smaller events in schools throughout Europe. Among the other priorities of the Austrian Presidency: the opportunities of digitalisation for young girls and boys, gender mainstreaming, work-life balance and the implementation of the Istanbul Convention on preventing and combatting violence against women.

MEPs welcomed the organisation of this conference on gender equality and urged Austria to encourage the 10 member states that still have not done so to ratify the Istanbul Convention.

Krisztina Morvai is a member of the European Parliament for Hungary. During the meeting chaired by Juliane Bogner-Strauss, Ms. Morvai asked some pointed questions about the treatment of women by recently-arrived migrants in Europe. She wanted to know: Will the Austrian presidency protect European women from violence by migrants?

The following video includes Krisztina Morvai’s questions (in English), followed by excerpts from Minister Bogner-Strauss’ reply (in German, with English voice-over):

For those who read Hungarian, in an entry on her blog, Krisztina Morvai asks her readers to share this video.

  1. UNHCR data says:
    ‘Sweden has 123 boys for every 100 girls, more significant difference than China under one-child policy.
    Research shows where men outnumber women rates of violent crime, property crime and crime against women are higher.’
    In Germany ‘preliminary calculations [is] looking also to be abnormal at about 114 boys of that age for every 100 girls’.
    ‘Professor Hudson said it was staggering that European nations were so caught up in debating the impact of refugees’ religion, but did not seem to consider maintaining a balanced gender ratio in the community.’

    No kidding- when one adds the misogyny and supremacism of Islam to the mix, it’s criminally negligent and a huge betrayal of European women.
    A variety of pro-mass immigration and pro-open borders, feminists and female liberals will have to explain to their daughters, how they managed to make women’s rights turn backwards.

    As Steyn remarked, social progress is not like technology, it can be uninvented, one need only look at photos of women in Tehran, Kabul and Cairo from 30 or 40 years ago to see how quickly women can be covered from head to toe in cloth.

    Meanwhile the the Federal Criminal Police Office (Bundeskriminalamt, BKA) has offered advice to German women on how they can protect themselves from rapists: “Wear tennis shoes instead of high heels so that you can run away.”

  2. The Federal Minister predictably didn’t seem to warm to the idea of doing research into women’s experiences with regards illegal migrants and the effect on their lives. That can of worms can’t be opened.
