    The similarities between the number of media and political entities in places ranging from Hungary and Poland, to Italy and France, are curious, their links to political parties, and relentless campaigns against the same targets eg “gender theory studies”

  2. Hungary is banning gender studies in universities. Why? There are only about 12 students in this subject, so the target is small.

    But the objective is clear: intimidate academics & position left-liberals as radicals driven by a feminist ideology that seems alien to most voters.

    Gender studies are “an ideology, not science”, so the Hungarian government is about to abolish and ban such M.A. courses at universities. Unis #ELTE and @ceuhungary were given 48 hours to comment on the proposal. #academicfreedom hvg.hu/itthon/2018080…
