Anti-Woman Women: Exhibit A
Posted by: Grace62

"Janice Shaw Crouse, a senior fellow at the conservative Concerned Women for America, said her group had been pressing senators hard to oppose reauthorization of legislation she called “a boondoggle” that vastly expands government and “creates an ideology that all men are guilty and all women are victims.”

Last month on the conservative Web site Townhall.com, the conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly called the Violence Against Women Act a slush fund “used to fill feminist coffers” and demanded that Republicans stand up against legislation that promotes “divorce, breakup of marriage and hatred of men.”

The legislation these ladies oppose is the bipartisan reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, first passed in 1994 and now under discussion in the US Senate.

(What they are really mad about is the fact that the bill includes same sex couples and more protection for women who are illegal aliens.)

I think the violence has more to do with that than this law.

I'm afraid I have nothing good to say about Mrs. Shlafly. I knew her (she's still good friends with my mother) and went to school with two of her boys. The whole family is whacko.

You would think.

Sen. Murkowski, a sponsor of the re-authorization bill, got it right on this one,

"At a closed-door Senate Republican lunch on Tuesday, Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska sternly warned her colleagues that the party was at risk of being successfully painted as antiwoman — with potentially grievous political consequences in the fall, several Republican senators said Wednesday."

Yes she is the worst. Unfortunately and for reasons that escape me, she has political clout.

“Why extremists always focus on women remains a mystery to me,” she told an adoring crowd at the Women in the World Summit at Lincoln Center on Saturday. “But they all seem to. It doesn’t matter what country they’re in or what religion they claim. They want to control women. They want to control how we dress. They want to control how we act. They even want to control the decisions we make about our own health and bodies.

“Yes,” she continued to applause, “it is hard to believe that even here at home, we have to stand up for women’s rights and reject efforts to marginalize any one of us, because America needs to set an example for the entire world.”

Murkowski got torn asunder in AK following her vote and stance on the whole contraception kerfuffle last month.
