How Big Government Hurts Women

Government-mandated employee perks might sound like a good way to help out working women, but, in reality, these programs do more harm than good. European women are already paying the price, and American women might be next. Carrie Lukas, President of Independent Women’s Forum, explains how keeping the government out of the workplace goes a long way toward keeping women in it.

I Take This Woman . . .

The  ]internet provides everything you’d want to know about courtships, weddings, married life, but few of them include the instructions on wife-beating.  There is a brief but enlightening film, produced by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and posted on Jihad Watch, of a Muslim sociologist who demonstrates the “proper” wife-beating technique.  Of course, the sociologist assures his audience that Islam is merciful, and that the man, the head of the household, should not have to beat his wife every day, and to do so lightly, never to hit her face or head, bruise, break bones or cause blood to flow (m10:12, Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law – ROTT).  But the cautionary statement rings hollow when the wife’s bruises will never be seen because she must be covered from head to toe.  And, should she become inured to the discipline’s sameness, there are other means of control and punishment available to him, all sanctioned by The Religion of Peace.

New Study Drives a Stake Through the Gender Wage Gap Myth

Re-Blogged From Total Conservative

Harvard University researchers Valentin Bolotnyy and Natalia Emanuel have published a new study of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority that could give us the best argument yet against the left-wing, feminist myth of the gender wage gap. In their groundbreaking work, the researchers found that while they did indeed find a wage disparity between men and women at the MBTA, this could be wholly explained by real-world factors that have absolutely nothing to do with sexism, either individually speaking or institutionalized.

“Female workers earn $0.89 on the male-worker dollar,” at the MBTA, reported the researchers in their paper. “The weekly earnings gap can be explained by the workplace choices that women and men make.”

What Trends We’re Tracking on International Women’s Day

Re-Blogged From Stratfor

The shift from a premodern farming society to a modern industrialized society, for example, hinged on the increased participation of women in the workforce. Many nations today, such as Japan, face demographic decline or economic stagnation. And in order to maintain growth, these countries are being forced to combat the legal and social barriers that have kept women out of the workforce. Even in regions such as the Middle East and North Africa, where women have explicitly been prevented from participating in public life, governments are hoping to encourage growth by embracing reform efforts that incorporate women into their economies.
