    George F. Will: New Project for the Gender Police - Newsweek

    The bad news for professional feminists is that the good news is multiplying: Last year more women than men received doctoral degrees. It is ludicrous to argue that women should be regarded as victims in patriarchal, phallocentric America and must be wards of government.

    Women live five years longer than men. Their unemployment rate is significantly lower. For years they have received more high-school diplomas, B.A. and M.A. degrees, and now Ph.D.s. Yet the Obama administration wants the government to increase its protection of the (it evidently assumes) weaker sex. This, even though “contrary to what feminist lobbyists would have Congress believe, girls and women are doing well.” So says Diana Furchtgott-Roth.

    A senior fellow at the Hudson Institute and former chief economist at the Department of Labor, she is the author of a just-published (from Encounter Books) broadside against the gender politics of the Obama administration and the current Congress, both of which seem impervious to evidence.

    The Liberal's Victims leaving Victim Status ain't Good News for them...

    So since Men are Falling behind and Dying Earlier, shouldn't we be Advocating for Programs and Assistance for Men now?...

    Of course I am not Suggesting that...

    But are we Neglecting Boys in School in Favor of the Perceived Victims, the Girls, based on Old Data and Stereotypes?

    This was Warned about LONG ago.

    The Pay Differences from Men to Women... Rarely was it Illustrated that Women Choosing Motherhood/Housewife or taking Time Off from their Careers had a Direct Impact on those Numbers.

    Time to Revisit it and make some Adjustments to how we Approach the Genders in Schools, in my Opinion.

    How about you?

    :)

    peace...

    Women do not "receive" degrees, they EARN them. And women with post graduate degrees still earn significantly less than the vast majority of men with undergraduate degrees.
