Talk:War on Women
This seems an awful lot like an unproven, accusatory conspiracy theory--similar to the 9/11 attacks. I can guarantee that, even if the Democratic Party did something like this, they wouldn't have given it your nickname of the "War on Women". —The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:JLefkowitz (talk)
- Yes, a conspiracy theory. I knew the Democrats were incapable of playing political cards.--Jpatt 16:34, 13 March 2012 (EDT)
Intro sentence wrong
The article starts with ""War on Women" is a campaign narrative crafted and promoted by the Democratic Party for the 2012 election cycle." The term predates the current election cycle. As far as I can tell Democrats have been using the term for the last 5-6 years. They use the phrase every time the GOP makes an effort to curtail legal abortions, resist democratic proposals for increased contraception funding, or attempt to defund groups like Planned Parenthood. It's not a new phenomenon. --JoshuaB 19:20, 14 March 2012 (EDT)
Other wars on women
The Republicans are not the only group who (allegedly) are waging a war on women. What about the Islamic world? Even a NY Times op-ed writer admits:
- In some of Allah’s lands, the war on women and on couples has the air of an inquisition. During the summer in Algeria, brigades of Salafists and local youths worked up by the speeches of radical imams and Islamist TV preachers go out to monitor female bodies, especially those of women bathers at the beach. The police hound couples, even married ones, in public spaces. Gardens are off-limits to strolling lovers. Benches are sawed in half to prevent people from sitting close together.
