Richard Dawkins And The Supersitions Of Feminism

If Dawkins were to focus his finely-tuned intellect on the superstitions of feminism and progressivism, as he has done in the past, he may find he has more allies in the cultural libertarian movement than the increasingly dogmatic regressive left.
What are the "superstitions of feminism"?

Superstition is the belief in supernatural causality—that one event causes another without any natural process linking the two events—such as astrology and certain aspects linked to religion, like omens, witchcraft and prophecies, that contradict natural science.

The word superstition is generally used to refer to the religion not practiced by the majority of a given society – such as Christianity in Western culture – regardless of whether the prevailing religion contains superstitions. It is also commonly applied to beliefs and practices surrounding luck, prophecy, and certain spiritual beings, particularly the belief that future events can be foretold by specific (apparently) unrelated prior events.
Perhaps the author really meant to ask "What are the falsehoods of feminism?"

Falsity (from Latin falsitas) or falsehood is a perversion of truth originating in the deceitfulness of one party, and culminating in the damage of another party. Falsity is also a measure of the quality or extent of the falseness of something, while a falsehood may also mean simply an incorrect (false) statement, independent of any intention to deceive.
On second thought, I think the author meant what he wrote and is guilty of falsity, and is simply trying to equate feminists with witches.
