UK Muslim women have organized a Twitter campaign against Prime Minister David Cameron after he was reported to have made comments about the “traditional submissiveness of Muslim women.” This was in regards to the English language testing he proposed as an effort to improve “migrant integration” (see below for story).
Let’s just say the women of Twitter had a not so docile response to the PM:
— I bought a sports car and published a book (in English and eight other languages). I must be doing this wrong #traditionallysubmissive (Tweeted Shelina Janmohamed)
— @David_Cameron I speak 4 languages,how many do you speak? #TraditionallySubmissive (Tweeted Aasiya Versi)
— Our youth group hiked 20km along the Jurassic Coast to raise over £10k for charity #TraditionallySubmissive (Tweeted by Tooting Sunday Circle)
— @David_Cameron We shall lift up our sisters ourselves because we are not #TraditionallySubmissive (Tweeted by Nicole Correri)
