I was asked to note...

By Jim Dallas

That there will be a March for Women on April 25th in Washington DC, which of course will be a good opportunity to speak out against the anti-woman agenda of the Bush administration. It's being sponsored by the NOW, ACLU, Feminist Majority, NARAL, et. al.

And for what it's worth, I hear there'll be chicks there, too. (j/k)

How is the Bush admin "anti-woman" ?

Is this just an abortion issue, or is there something more ?

There's the welfare reform bill (get married or else!).

Social security privatization (which many policy analysts believe would hurt women).

You noted abortion already.

Sex-ed policy.

Title IX.

I could list more...

The welfare policy is to promote marriage, not require it.
It's well known that married couples are far less frequently in poverty than single parents.

SS privatization won't hurt women, because current beneficiaries, including those receiving survivor's benefits, won't be affected.
Future female beneficiaries will be living longer, and thus can only be helped by getting a higher return on their contributions.

Title IX is in no danger of being overturned, but does any sane person really believe that the intent of the legislation was to reduce the number of male athletes and collegiate sports ?
If any female is denied the opportunity to participate in sports, that's bad, but collegiate females don't want to participate in organized sports to the same extent that males do, and so we see even Olympic medal winning programmes in wrestling, swimming, et al., being cut by various colleges and universities.

"Equal access" doesn't have to mean "equal numbers".

An abstinence-only sex-ed programme may be less effective, but it hurts males and females equally.

Thank you for the post Jim D.

In my humble opinion, the March for Women's Lives is part of a broader public health care movement including women's health, reproductive services, cancer screenings, international family planning, AIDS funding and minority issues. It's about being an advocate for these rights for future generations and ensuring that the voices of women are heard.

For a suuuper long list of Bush's anti-women policies, initiatives and directives go here:

And Bush gets the ultimate dufus award for speaking at an event to honor women's achievement and acknowledging several woman of acomplishment, except one of them was a man!

was it G. Connor in drag? j/k

Two things.

"If any female is denied the opportunity to participate in sports, that's bad, but collegiate females don't want to participate in organized sports to the same extent that males do, and so we see even Olympic medal winning programmes in wrestling, swimming, et al., being cut by various colleges and universities."

Compare the budgets of every single female college sport to the budget of any college football team. Wrestling and swimming are being cut because of the football budget, not because of any womens' sports.

"An abstinence-only sex-ed programme may be less effective, but it hurts males and females equally."

A program that fails to stop teenage pregnancies does hurt females more. Why? Because boys don't get pregnant, silly.
