Women Fight Back

Republicans have been on the rhetorical offensive against women for too long. Will Mothers Day be a time to stand up for their rights?

According to the most recent data available, there are more women in the USA than men, so why is it that they lack equal representation in government, private industry, and academia, and their earnings are still not the same as those of men. Will the scales of equal justice for all under the law ever be balanced?

#Census2020   @uscensusbureau
USA  281,421,906 100 percent
Male 138,053,563 49.1 percent
Female 143,368,343 50.9 percent

The growing wave of abortion restrictions in America could buck international trends, with over 30 nations increasing abortion access in the past decades. American women say -  ‘My body, my choice.’ How much simpler does it have to be for everyone to see and hear loud and clear?

As Mother’s Day, then followed by USA mid-term election day grows closer this day, the GOP fears this will give new momentum to female forces everywhere for the United States of American women.

A draft #SCOTUS opinion constricting freedom for females, the January 6 GOP men’s riot, the Republican plan to raise taxes for the middle class, the growing attacks on women, the increase in poverty, addiction, and COVID death rates from Republican-dominated states are all pretty clear.

More than half of US states may ban abortion if Roe vs. Wade falls. But state lawmakers have not been waiting on the nation’s highest court to pass stricter abortion laws.

American women, can you hear them now? The Republican message is loud and clear. It should cause American voters real fear.
