What is a “woman’s issue,” when it comes to state and national politics?
I have watched in astonishment as the Democrats, over the past 20 months, have systematically thrown away what has in our lifetime been their primary treasure: that is to say, the women’s vote.
But — what is a “women’s issue”?
As a feminist, it has amazed me that the gender politics of what has happened to us over the past two years has gone virtually un-analyzed. Lockdowns and medical coercion, vaccine mandates, the masking of children, the closures of small businesses by force — freedom itself, for Lord’s sake — are all, obviously, “women’s issues.”
(As CEO and cofounder of a non-partisan platform, I cannot tell you for whom to vote. But I can remind you what freedom looks like; and as a feminist, I can certainly do what I have done for decades, and urge women to vote “like women.” The conclusions you reach when you think about how this issue is at play now, may surprise you.)
Who was disproportionately harmed by lockdowns? Masking? Forced mRNA injections?
Women and their children.
This cruelty, misogyny and child abuse are reasons that rage-filled mama bear groups avenging children’s torture, such as Tiffany Justice’s Moms for Liberty, are growing exponentially. Though Moms for Liberty are caricatured as Trumpers, they are nonpartisan — see their website. When they urge community members to “Find your People” they don’t mention a political party. Theirs is a newly defined, awe-inspiringly effective tribal affiliation, deeper than party labels.
I know from being in contact with Moms for Liberty, that there is no way to characterize them politically, since partisan politics is not their organizing principle. Their home page shows women of all backgrounds. Their motto, “We Don’t Co-Parent with the Government,” resonates with moms in regard to any government, whether Left or Right. These furious ladies, now in chapters across the nation, don’t care what your label is.
