THERE ARE a lot of problems in the world. But you can do one simple thing to help solve most of them: Support the Girl Effect.
When you help a girl, you help produce a cascade of positive side-effects, but pertinent to our purposes here, it also helps curb Islam's relentless expansion. For girls to gain and retain equal rights, Islam's doctrine cannot be fully expressed. So fighting for women's rights is effectively fighting against Islam's ultimate goal of world domination. Even in free countries, the most effective tool against Islamic encroachment is the application of already-existing rights for women.
Watch the Girl Effect video (below) and share it with your friends (it is two minutes long):
Your friends don't need to know their efforts to help girls will accomplish the goal of curbing the spread of jihad. But it will. The Pentagon has discovered that the level of violence in a town can be predicted by simply looking at the number of girls who go to school in that town. No kidding. Girls are the key.
And the key to helping girls is helping their mothers. To whatever degree you empower women by giving them legal rights, to that degree Islam's relentless repression of women is necessarily weakened.
This is a positive, life-affirming, inspiring way to defeat Islam's relentless encroachment. Go to the Girl Effect website and get involved. Recruit your friends and family into the cause. This is a purpose we can all get behind. Join the Girl Effect on FaceBook to get updates.
Your friends and family need never know why you're promoting the Girl Effect, or that it has anything to do with Islam, and it doesn't matter — the work needs to be done and in the end we will all be better off.
