Wilkow!: Who Is Really Waging the ‘War on Women’?
Democrats often accuse Republicans of waging a “War on Women” regarding their views on abortion and funding for organizations like Planned Parenthood. But now a growing number of conservatives are calling out what they see as far more substantial damage done to the pocket books of American women thanks to this administration. Conservative commentator Celia Bigelow writes on TheBlaze contributors page this week:
President Obama has forced young Americans into what I like to call the “Great Youth Depression.” Only 6 in 10 young Americans are currently employed, half of which are working full-time. Since President Obama took office, average graduating student loan debt is around $28,000, and student loan default rates have reached an all-time high of 13.1 percent.
I guess President Obama’s consolation to unemployment and indebtedness is free birth control. Yippee! You might not have a job, but at least, well you know…
What isn’t funny is that this is the reality President Obama is forcing many young women into.
Youth unemployment among women has steadily risen from 14 percent to 15.2 percent since the election. It is particularly heinous for young, black women who are faced with an unemployment rate of 26.4 percent.
The labor force also shrunk from 52.7 percent to 52 percent since the election, and 101,000 young women have totally given up looking for a job.
Executive Director of the Independent Women’s Forum Sabrina Schaeffer joined ‘Wilkow!‘ Thursday to talk about modern feminism and how women are doing under this administration that, despite claiming the feminist mantle, pays male staffers on average 13 percent more than women.
