Why Modern Feminists Hate Gov. Sarah Palin
… and me, too, though I am hardly in the same class of accomplishment as the Gov. …
Cathy Young explains it in today’s WSJ. This is what I have been trying to say, but she says it so much better than I.
Not to Ms. Marsh, who insists that feminism must demand support for women from the government. In this worldview, advocating more federal subsidies for institutional day care is pro-woman; advocating tax breaks or regulatory reform that would help home-based care providers — preferred by most working parents — is not. Trying to legislate away the gender gap in earnings (which no self-respecting economist today blames primarily on discrimination) is feminist. Expanding opportunities for part-time and flexible jobs is “the Republican Party line.”
And, I might add, not to mention that baby-killing thing …. Read the whole thing here. I’ll have more to say on that so-called gender gap later.
