    I agree. I would also counter them and make the claim that the real war on women is really being conducted by the liberals themselves. Women have equality now. Arguing about oppression, or whatever, is counter-productive and hurts the cause of women. By demeaning stay at home mothers the feminists are contradicting their entire philosophy.

    Townhall’s Katie Pavlich is tired of the way the Left repeatedly defines women “by the pills they take, by their body parts, and as victims of their gender.” Yesterday, Pavlich spoke at the National Conservative Student Conference in Washington, D.C. to dispel a few myths about the Left and the political agenda behind their "female empowerment" movement.

    Myth number one is that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is beneficial for women. “According to the Manhattan Institute, Obamacare is increasing women’s rates by 62 percent nationally, and depending on the state, some women could see their premiums triple. In addition, millions of women have received letters stating their insurance plans are being canceled because they do not comply with the Affordable Care Act.” Health care aside, Pavlich noted that Barack Obama has repeatedly used women to get himself and other Democrats re-elected, though he hasn’t done much to get women back to work. “There are nearly a million fewer women in the work force today than when President Obama took office in 2009. Joblessness for women under his watch has jumped 15.5 percent according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”.....snip~

    The left defines this as success-because its a way to get more voters dependent.

    Who benefits when people are ignorant, poor, dependent, and entitled? The left, thats who. This is just one example.

    As the video highlighted the wage gap IS complicated.

    Of course the reasons behind women being less likely to go into STEM fields and being less likely to ask for raises is also complicated. While it certainly getting better, young girls were much more likely to be dissuaded by parents and educators from going into STEM fields. Comments like, "Sweety, don't play in the dirt, you will get your dress dirty" add up and they DO have an effect on the woman the girl grows into. Likewise, girls are more likely to be raised to be more quiet and submissive. So yeah, they are going to be less likely to be assertive and ask for raises. It isn't some grand conspiracy, it is just the influence of our society.

    I do think all of that is getting much better, though, and educators are more likely nowadays to encourage girls when they show an interest in STEM subjects.

    On the abortion point I vehemently disagree with his premise. Abortion isn't the killing of unborn children. Children have minds. And it is an insult to actual children to put them on the same rung as a mindless mass of tissue. The two sides just don't agree what makes a person a person.

    I certainly don't think Hillary Clinton would make a good President, though.

    So if women "winning the war on women" means things are improving for women then yes, I think women are winning. Good.

    Most whole heartily agreed.

    Most certainly agreed.

    You know, I'm really getting tired of these leftists and their activities. I see no good coming from it, other than the conservatives continuously defending against it, and gaining strength and resilience by doing so. Maybe they are doing society a favor by doing so?
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    t is well know that women are the majority of the voters and that they are easily persueded by this type of propaganda.


    The right-wing evangelicals who would like to get the government off of Wall Street's back and into every American bedroom have been pushing women to the left for a long time.

    The "Mommy wars" are always demeaning, when you think about it. But I must state that women have made gains in legal equality (and even then one could have serious qualms with suggesting that legal equality has been accomplished), but not necessarily social equality. The social component is one part in which ideology is granted control. It is on this plane that oppression also is seen as existing. As such, attempts to address this fall within the realm of "social justice," if you will.
