The “war on women” is not exactly a new concept, but it still has the power to raise the hackles, and open the checkbooks, of many in the Democratic base. Sabrina Schaeffer, executive director of the Independent Women’s Forum, joins me to talk about what rely motivates all this “war” rhetoric. Not surprisingly, it’s a ruse to deflect attention away from the Democrats’ rotten economic record. As Scaheffer wrote earlier this month:
The women’s-liberation movement intended to draw attention away from women’s bodies; but today Democrats are the only ones still talking about women’s “issues.” Despite all the many educational and professional achievements women have made, Democrats seem committed to keeping the conversation focused on our bodies. And that’s the biggest attack on women by far.
That’s taking objectification to a fresh, new low.
