“Take back freedom, take back reason.”
Despite feminists tearing down posters for the event last week, Christina Hoff Sommers finally spoke at California State University, Los Angeles.
She was invited to speak by the Young Americans for Freedom chapter at the school and much to the chagrin of leftists, drew a sizable audience.
Of course, like all non-progressives who attempt to make their voices heard on American college campuses today, her event required heavy security.

Christina Hoff-Sommers talks feminism at CSULA
On Tuesday, California State University, Los Angeles’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter hosted Christina Hoff-Sommers, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute for a talk entitled “Where Feminism Went Wrong.”
Hoff-Sommers spoke to a packed audience about the dangers of modern-day feminism, and how it’s imperative that conservatives stand up and fight against it.
Hoff-Sommers primarily focused on the idea that women in America are the freest women in the world. She also argued that common liberal ideas like the “wage gap” are used as a political tool and have no basis in reality.
“Intersectional feminism is a repressive ideology,” Hoff-Sommers argued. “It infantilizes women through microaggression monitoring and privilege checking, which are not really about protecting vulnerable, marginalized people. They are illiberal means of preventing the free exchange of ideas.”
“Fight for what is rightfully yours,” she concluded. “The freedom to speak, to think, to grow. Take back freedom, take back reason, take back kindness and humor, and while you’re at it, take back feminism.”
This short video will give you an idea of what the event was like. At one point, a young woman in the audience tries to tell Sommers that we have more slavery in America today for some reason:
