What do You Mean Stephen Harper Has Done Nothing For Women?
As we look back at the five years of Harper, many are suggesting that he has done nothing for women. C'mon. Give the man a break.
Did he not have his minister for the Status of Women announce that date rape was the result of the hypersexuality of young girls? How else would we have known that young men had been so victimized?
Did he not remove that pesky word "equality" from their mandate? I mean if women see that word, they are only reminded of how empty it is.
Did he not reduce the number of women in the public service? All the estrogen was making men too sensitive.
Did he not close down 80% of the Status for Women offices, saving taxpayers thousands. Of course he spent any money saved to finance his fundraisers, but his heart was in the right place.
And did he not defund a database of nearly 600 cases of missing or murdered aboriginal women in Canada. If his police have to spend time looking for missing women, when will they possibly find the time to beat up the rest of us?
Stephen Harper has done a lot for women, and now women have a chance to return the favour, by giving him an early retirement.
