But let's not fool ourselves into thinking that this is just a problem of men attacking women's rights. Conservative women's rights groups, always eager for a patriarchal pat on the head, have long thrown other women under the bus under the guise of protecting them from their own wanton sexuality. The Independent Women's Forum — whose members oppose the Violence Against Women Act and Title IX, and who don't believe pay inequity exists — started a campaign years ago to get the award-winning play "The Vagina Monologues" banned from college campuses, arguing that it's pornographic and reduces women to their body parts. (Specifically, the one they'd rather not think about.) The Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute, another right-wing women's organization, launched a campaign and contest in 2008 titled "Bringing Back the Dowry and Hope Chest." The winner received a "cedar-lined hope chest filled with $1,000 worth of dowry items" as well as $500 toward her future wedding.
