So, in the Liberal, Politically-Correct Pecking order, Muslims beat Women (quite literally)

muslim-woman-beaten-500

Brandeis University in Massachusetts announced Tuesday that it had withdrawn the planned awarding of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a staunch critic of Islam and its treatment of women, after protests from students and faculty.

“She is a compelling public figure and advocate for women’s rights, and we respect and appreciate her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the world,” said the university’s statement. “That said, we cannot overlook certain of her past statements that are inconsistent with Brandeis University’s core values.”

Ali, a member of the Dutch Parliament from 2003 to 2006, has been quoted as making comments critical of Islam. That includes a 2007 interview with Reason Magazine in which she said of the religion, “Once it’s defeated, it can mutate into something peaceful. It’s very difficult to even talk about peace now. They’re not interested in peace. I think that we are at war with Islam. And there’s no middle ground in wars.”

Ali was raised in a strict Muslim family, but after surviving a civil war, genital mutilation, beatings and an arranged marriage, she renounced the faith in her 30s. She has not commented publicly on the issue of the honorary degree.

Obama’s War on Women: Two Ways to Hurt Women in the Workplace

Women-in-shock-500

Sex-based discrimination in the workplace has been illegal since 1963. And since then, “Women have not only caught up to men in many professional endeavors; single, young women are outperforming their male counterparts in urban areas,” says Heritage’s Romina Boccia, the Grover M. Hermann Fellow. “No surprise there, as women already earn more bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees than men do.”

Equal Pay Day is supposed to be about boosting women, but President Obama and his allies are taking the opportunity to push two policy proposals that would hurt women (and men) in the workplace.

1. Raising the minimum wage.

The White House is pushing the idea that a minimum wage increase would help women, because women make up the majority of the workforce in several low-wage industries. What that actually means, however, is that hiking the minimum wage would deal a blow to women—since those are the jobs that would be lost with a wage hike. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour would kill off 500,000 jobs—and the Employment Policies Institute projects that 57 percent of those jobs are held by women.

2. Mandating “paycheck fairness.”

Another bad idea Congress has rejected in the past is surfacing again: the “Paycheck Fairness Act.” But a law already exists that prohibits discrimination based on a worker’s sex—it’s called the Equal Pay Act, and it’s been law since 1963. So what would the Paycheck Fairness Act do for women’s pay?

Heritage labor expert James Sherk explains that the proposal is more about inviting lawsuits than anything else.

the PFA allows employees to sue businesses that pay different workers different wages—even if those differences have nothing to do with the employees’ sex. These lawsuits can be brought for unlimited damages, giving a windfall to trial lawyers.

How would it hurt workers? Well, you can’t get a raise for being a high-performing employee—male or female—if it’s mandated that everyone with the same job title makes the same salary. Sherk notes the downward pressure it would put on pay:

Companies should be allowed to reward good performance without risking a lawsuit. Punishing companies that do not adopt uniform pay scales would cut the wages of both men and women.

Obama’s War on Women: Obama says he wants to close wage gap, while paying his own female staffers less

obama-and-the-women 500

President Barack Obama is planning to sign two new executive actions aimed at narrowing the wage gap between men and women Tuesday, even as the Obama White House pays its female staffers less than men.

The first executive action will be an order banning federal contractors from retaliation against employees who disclose or ask about their wages, according to reports. His other executive action will require federal contractors to submit data to the government about their employees compensation by sex and race.

On Tuesday — the day advocates have labelled “Equal Pay Day” to symbolize the amount of time women have to work to make as much as men did the year before — Obama will sign the executive orders at the White House, according to an AP report.

However, according to a Daily Caller analysis of “2013 Annual Report to Congress on White House Staff,”  the most recent available data on White House pay, the White House paid women an estimated 11.8 percent less than men in 2013.

Meanwhile, since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009, the U.S. economy has employed an additional 3,590,000 people, but only 1,386,000 of those people—or 38.6 percent–have been women.

At the same time, women represent 46.8 percent of the national  civilian labor force. That means women are getting a smaller share of  the jobs being added to the economy (38.6 percent) than their  representation in the civilian labor force (46.8 percent).

Obama’s War on Women: 180,000 More Women Unemployed in March

woman-unemployed 500

The number of women who were unemployed in  the United States climbed 180,000 in March, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

In March, there were 4,850,000 unemployed women, 180,000 more than the 4,670,000 American women were unemployed in February, according to BLS.

At the same time, the unemployment rate for women rose from 6.4 percent in February to 6.6 percent in March.

To be counted as unemployed, a person must have actively sought a job in the last four weeks and be part of what BLS calls the civilian noninstitutional population (meaning a person is 16 or older and not on active duty in the military or in an institution such as a prison, mental hospital or nursing home).

The number of American women who had jobs dropped 133,000 from February to March, declining from 68,458,000 to 68,325,000.

Obama hires fewer women…Feminists look the other way

obama-and-the-women 500

“Women are still the ones that are carrying the greatest burden when it comes to trying to balance family and work,” President Obama said last week to a group of women who serve in the U.S. Congress.

With this in mind, he is now planning a “White House Summit on Working Families” to take place this summer.

Obama is no doubt preparing to cast stones at the private sector. He really ought to look at his own administration.

Since Obama has been in office, according to data from the Office of Personnel Management, the percentage of women in the civilian federal work force has been shrinking. Before Obama took office, it was already smaller than the percentage in the overall national civilian labor force. Under Obama, it has gotten smaller still.

OPM maintains a database called FedScope that contains historical information going back to 1998 on much of the federal civilian labor force (but excludes, for example, the Judiciary, the White House, the Office of the Vice President, several intelligence agencies and the legislative staff of Congress). According to this database, about 44.4 percent of civilian federal workers were female in 1998.

In 2013, only about 43.5 percent were female — the lowest percentage in the sixteen years available.

In 1998, nationwide, about 46.3 percent of the civilian labor force was female — about 1.9 points more than the female share of the federal civilian labor force. In 2013, about 46.8 percent of the nationwide civilian labor force was female — about 3.3 points more than the female share of the federal civilian labor force.

Liberal Democrat accused of beating wife, now claims his wife beat him

M

Grayson’s wife Lolita accused Grayson of pushing her against a door and injuring her during a confrontation that occurred at the Graysons’ home near Windermere, Fla., Saturday.

Grayson called the allegation “an outright lie.” An Orange County Sheriff’s Office investigation is underway.

But Grayson’s attorney Mark NeJame said at a press conference Wednesday that Lolita assaulted the congressman and not the other way around. NeJame also released cell phone video footage purporting to show Lolita Grayson attacking the congressman with what NeJame called an “uppercut.”

Lolita Grayson, who filed for divorce in January, received a temporary restraining order from her husband after providing photographs of what she alleged were her own bruises.

Fortunately for the Congressman, being Liberal makes his claim of being b-slapped by a woman 100 lbs lighter than him, all that more believable. In any event, he needs to turn in his man-card.

ObamaCare shuts down (Liberal) Women’s Resource Center

Womens Health Center 500Women’s Resource Center closed its doors suddenly Friday, saying that federal health-care reforms have changed donor perceptions of the need to support affordable women’s health care services.

The Fort Collins nonprofit, which has provided a wide array of bilingual health and human services primarily for uninsured or underinsured women, has operated in Larimer County since 1975. Its programs focused on prevention of breast, cervical, ovarian and reproductive cancers, dental health and diabetes education and mental health services.

“The perception among many of our previous grantors seemed to be that Obamacare would now be able to provide for all women’s health needs,” the nonprofit’s board said in a written statement released Friday. “We started to develop a program to provide short-term crisis management for women who needed assistance with prioritizing and finding solutions to many of life’s difficulties, especially mental health issues.”

Center leaders said that many other county agencies were “fully supportive” of the nonprofit’s attempts to remain relevant in the changing face of health care, but the decision was not backed up by the funding needed to continue operations.

Huckabee says women not helpless; Liberals then blast Huckabee for saying women are helpless

huckabee 500Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee claimed his comments on women, contraceptives and “libido” were taken completely out of context by a Twitter-happy media, stating that his “pushback is not about contraceptives” but instead “Democrats and this phony ‘War on Women’ that they say Republicans have.”

The Republican spoke with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly about remarks he made during a speech on Thursday. Democrats, he said, “want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing them a prescription each month for birth control, because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government.”

Democrats and their friends in the media immediately pounced on the comments, calling them demeaning and derogatory because they suggested women cannot control their sexual urges.

But Huckabee contends that his words were taken completely out of context. “Everything I was accused of saying, I was actually saying the polar opposite,” he began. “This was an affirmation of the intelligence, of the capability of women.”
