There has always been a ‘War on Women’ – waged by Democrats

 

Democrats and the Obama Administration have created some amusing propaganda  recently – the GOP’s ‘War on Women’.  Many people believe there is no war on  women (there isn’t in the form that Obama is peddling)  but in reality  there has been a war waged against women for many years – by Democrats.   Let’s start with a little stroll back through history.

It was Democrats who didn’t want women to get the right to vote  nationally:  From the New York Times

League Takes the Place of Old Association That Won  the Fight

CHICAGO, Feb. 14 – The National American Woman’s Suffrage Association  today came to the defense of Will Hays, Chairman of the Republican National  Committee, who has been attacked by anti-suffragists for aid rendered to the  suffrage cause, and congratulated the Republican Party “for having a Chairman  who is astute enough to recognize the certain trend of public affairs and to  lead his party in step with the inevitable march of human progress.”

One of the most devastating to the family was that if an unwed woman  became pregnant, moved out of the home of her parents, did not name or know who  the father was, then Big Daddy in Washington would provide for all her essential  needs. Ergo she no longer needed a husband or the support of her family. In  fact, the more children she had out of wedlock, the more money she would receive  from the government.

The ‘Great Society’ hurt black women and families the most and  still does to this day:

…That’s the deal that the Great Society struck with low-income black  women in the 1970s. The result: the marginalization of black men, an explosion  of single-parent households, and the institutionalization of a near-permanent  under-class.

Forty years ago, social scientists devised a clever euphemism to sum up the  effects of a government program that picks taxpayers’ wallets, weakens the  family, and turns women into wards of the state: the feminization of  poverty.
