    Via the Caller, pollster Kellyanne Conway surveys the state of the “war on women” in Texas: “Women get exhausted with women candidates who say they are pro-woman and then run on issues that real women don’t say are most important to them.”No worries. Wendy’s rolling out a plan for universal pre-K at a cool $750 million per year in taxpayer expense. That’ll show ‘em.The favorability numbers are even starker. Among women, Abbott scores 35/27 while Davis clocks in at … 32/46. That’s basically identical to her 33/48 favorability among men. She ran on her biography, and this is where it...

    Here's a statstic that, taken by itself, doesn't really say much. More American are recieving government assistance for food via the SNAP program (formerly known as food stamps) than there are women working full time. CNS: In the average month of 2012, according to the Department of Agriculture, there were 46,609,000 people participating in the food stamp program (formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). That contrasts with the 44,059,000 women who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, according to the Census Bureau’s report on Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States. For each woman who worked...

    An economist serving on a second-term president's Council of Economic Advisers might expect to weigh in on fundamental issues, restructuring the tax system or making entitlement programs sustainable over the long term. Barack Obama once talked of addressing such issues, and Republican leaders such as House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp are doing so. But that's not what University of Michigan economist and CEA member Betsey Stevenson finds herself doing. Instead, she is defending the use of misleading statistics in support of legislation addressing a minor problem. The legislation is Obama's latest pay equity measure, which failed to pass...

    "HONOR DIARIES" might not be coming to a theater near you, at least not if CAIR gets its way. The award-winning documentary about "honor" violence against girls and women in much of the Muslim world was released last month in honor of International Women's Day, and it didn't take long for the Council on American Islamic Relations to slap its all-purpose "Islamophobic!" label on it. The film has been shown in dozens of venues, but CAIR has raised enough of a stink to get screenings cancelled on several college campuses, including the University of Michigan and the University of Illinois....

    In Pakistan, according to a report released by Movement for Solidarity and Peace, 100 to 700 Christian girls are forced to convert to Islam each year. The girls are usually between the ages of 12 and 25; they are abducted, forced to convert and then married to the abductor or to a third party. What commonly happens is that the family of the abducted girl files a First Information Report (FIR) for kidnapping to the police, and then the abductor files a counter FIR that accuses the girl’s family for harassing their ‘willfully’ converting daughter. The girl is forced to...

    Earlier today, Glenn Kessler predicted that Democrats would find the 77-cent lie too irresistible to jettison. Perhaps a dose of their own medicine might cure them. The National Republican Senatorial Committee did a little research into how Senate Democrat incumbents running in 2014 do on the issue that has been tailor-made for their “war on women” campaign strategies. Five 2014 Democratic contenders for the Senate come up short — even shorter than the White House, and two of them fall below the 77-cent line: It turns out President Obama isn’t the only hypocritical Democrat, in fact Senate Democrats have their...

In an era in which liberalism and socialism are wedged into every sector of society, we need to be encouraged and reminded of the power within us. By virtue of simply standing for what is right, from the perspective of God, our nation’s founders and conservatism overall, we possess unique, transformative power, real power that speaks to the plethora of society’s ills and traitorous, reckless government....

    Women feel invisible to the opposite sex at the age of 51, it emerged yesterday. A detailed study of 2,000 women revealed a large percentage felt they no longer received the level of attention they once did after hitting 51. Many even went as far as to admit they felt ‘ignored’. The women claimed their confidence plummeted after hitting 50 and blamed greying hair, having to to wear glasses or even struggling to find fashionable clothes. The lifestyle study, commissioned by herbal remedies company, A.Vogel, also found more than two thirds of women over 45 had walked into a room...

So wrote the Washington Post's Dana Milbank about a panel that featured Mollie Hemingway, Karin Agness and yours truly.

    A quick way to kill debate is to accuse your political adversary of “lying.” Still, it’s hard to figure out what else propels President Barack Obama to falsely assert, yet again, that employers rip off female employees by paying them 23 cents less per dollar than men – for doing the same work. In his last State of the Union address, Obama said: “Today, women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work....

    Despite the breadth of attention that “women’s studies” get on campus, most of the information purveyed in them is, well, wrong. “Twenty percent of Americans self-identify as feminists,” Karin Agness of the Network of Enlightened Women (NeW) said at the Heritage Foundation on Monday. She gave the Huffington Post as her source, hardly a right wing web site. Moreover, surveys show that women are less happy than they were 40 years ago, Agness notes, and, last year the Pew foundation found that only 37% of women want to work full-time. Yet and still, women earn more degrees than men at...

Although 3 enlisted female marines have reportedly passed the less rigorous infantry training course, no women have been able to make it through the stricter infantry officer course. In a piece for the Washington Post, Second Lt. Sage Santangelo argues that the reason that female officers are not passing the test is because they are not being trained to the same standards as men. She believes that women are more than capable of doing the...

    You may have missed it, but March 8 was International Women’s Day, a holiday unconnected to a religious rite or person, and with no national or even seasonal significance. It is socialist in origin, and it was Lenin himself who made it an official holiday in the Soviet Union. Not surprisingly, it is now a rite of the United Nations. In these origins lie the day’s basic fallacy: that womanhood is an international – global – political state of being; that there is a universal female political condition that urges, a la Marx, “Women of the world, unite!” Against what?...

I certainly can’t read their minds, and I don’t know what goes on behind the scenes, all I know is that the husband couldn’t seem to utter a single phrase that wouldn’t provoke exaggerated eye-rolling from his wife. She disagreed with everything he said. She contradicted nearly every...

    **SNIP** The vice president made the argument that Obamacare will provide more freedom to American workers who no longer have to worry about coverage issues, leaving them with the ability to leave their jobs. Biden continued, “Now you’ll be able to make an independent choice: Do you want to stay in that job and still have health insurance, or do you want to stay in that job even though you can get health insurance absent that job?” Biden also added, “It gives women a great deal more freedom.”

    FORT EUSTIS, Va. — Only a small fraction of Army women say they'd like to move into one of the newly opening combat jobs, but those few who do say they want a job that takes them right into the heart of battle, according to preliminary results from a survey of the service's nearly 170,000 women. That survey and others across the Army, publicly disclosed for the first time to The Associated Press, also revealed that soldiers of both genders are nervous about women entering combat jobs but say they are determined to do it fairly. Men are worried about...

    In my youth, vampires were EVIL INCARNATE. They used you and left you dead or worse. Somehow, in the past fifty years, vampires have become teenaged heartthrobs, misunderstood and full of angst. But do you realize, from a societal and sociological point of view...vampires are the perfect man for modern women? In my youth, in the movies, men were men. You were either John Wayne…strong, silent, but caring underneath, or you were Cary Grant…quirky, but strong, witty on the surface, but a manly good guy underneath. They were GOOD INCARNATE. We have gelded the modern male. Once they were supposed...

    When it comes to dating and romance, most people prefer to be with a partner who shares the same political views. But it seems that when money is involved, this preference seems to go out the window.

    The Inquisitr ^ | February 16, 2014 | Staff
    Women gun owners are becoming a significant constituency in America. As The Inquisitr previously reported, the number of women participating in gun sports, such as target shooting and hunting, has steadily increased over the last decade. Estimates of the number of US women who are purchasing and learning how to use guns range from 12 million to 17 million. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) claims that women are the fastest growing demographic of firearms enthusiasts. This growth is occurring perhaps because of, or despite, controversial efforts at the federal and state level to enact additional gun control regulations. CNN...

    Having liberals claim that someone else is waging a "war on women" is like Anteaters claiming Ladybugs are making war on ants. Not only is the Left much more unfriendly to women than the Right, liberals are actually leaving a body count behind. 1) The Party of Infanticide: The liberals’ whole "safe, legal and rare" abortion shtick has gone by the wayside and they've moved on to "Any reason's a good reason." Just this week, Iowa Democratic State Representative Beth Wessel-Kroeschell advocated aborting children to avoid "sleepless nights" and avoid "disciplinary challenges." Even the Aztecs weren't as zealous about sacrificing...
  • Wives Are Now More Educated than Husbands In the U.S: More women are "marrying down,", academically

    TIME ^ | 02/14/2014 | Belinda Luscombe
    or the first time in 50 years, the educational balance among married couples has tipped towards women. Wives are more likely to be the better educated partner than the other way around. The trend is particularly sharp among newlyweds; in 2012 almost 40% of college educated women were married to a guy without a degree. This is a big reversal from the 30 year trend between 1960 and 1990, when it was the men who were marrying down, educationally speaking. The difference is not yet huge; Pew researchers, using data from the American Community Survey and the Decennial Census, found...
