Feminism backfires on women… Again

Feminists can’t have your cake and eat it too. The fact is that by nature of gender, women have different things to consider than men, particularly when it comes to working.

Every time women try to FIX nature, FIX God’s intention, it backfires. You can’t FIX being a mother, because there is nothing to fix.

There is no higher honor, which is why I find it amazing that feminists are so flippant about a woman’s choice at motherhood.

When it comes to employment, here are a few of the unintended consequences of the feminist movement:

  • In Chile, a law requires employers to provide working mothers with child care. One result? Women are paid less.

  • In Spain, a policy to give parents of young children the right to work part-time has led to a decline in full-time, stable jobs available to all women — even those who are not mothers.

  • Elsewhere in Europe, generous maternity leaves have meant that women are much less likely than men to become managers or achieve other high-powered positions at work.

In other words, feminism is women’s worst enemy, achieving exact OPPOSITE result it intended.

And here’s some interesting lexicon, as the Left disguise their feminism under the misnomer of “family friendly.” What’s family-friendly about discouraging motherhood?

It is indeed family-friendly when a mother raises her children.

Yet according to this article,

Family-friendly policies can help parents balance jobs and responsibilities at home, and go a long way toward making it possible for women with children to remain in the work force. But these policies often have unintended consequences.

They can end up discouraging employers from hiring women in the first place, because they fear women will leave for long periods or use expensive benefits. “For employers, it becomes much easier to justify discrimination,” said Sarah Jane Glynn, director of women’s economic policy at the Center for American Progress.

Unlike many countries, the United States has few federal policies for working parents. One is the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, which provides workers at companies of a certain size with 12 weeks of unpaid leave.

Women are 5 percent more likely to remain employed but 8 percent less likely to get promotions than they were before it became law, according to an unpublished new study by Mallika Thomas, who will be an assistant professor of economics at Cornell University. She attributed this partly to companies that don’t take a chance on investing in the careers of women who might leave. “The problem ends up being that all women, even those who do not anticipate having children or cutting back in hours, may be penalized,” she said.

So again, even with the laws available to women in America, law established to help women, and the result is the law helps a few, but hurts the masses.

Talk about the catchphrase of Liberalism.

Liberals: They care so much it hurts.
