RNC: Biden and Democrats’ War on Women

The attacks extend from the economy to motherhood to women’s sports and spaces to the very definition of the word “woman.”

By the Republican National Committee

POLLS SHOW WOMEN ARE REJECTING BIDEN AND DEMOCRATS

  • Biden’s radical policies have waged a war on women across the country, leading to women increasingly rejecting Biden – and the Democrat Party – for failing to best represent their interests.
    • Biden’s approval rating is at only 36 percent among women, with a majority of women disapproving of the way Biden is handing the economy.
    • An overwhelming 75 percent of women disapprove of the job the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing.
  • Between skyrocketing inflation and far-left policies, it’s no wonder why 89 percent of females believe the country is on the wrong track.

THE BIDEN ECONOMY IS LEAVING WOMEN BEHIND

  • Women and families are suffering under Biden’s economy, faced with rising prices and shortages of feminine hygiene products and baby formula.
  • Biden has overseen a shortage on feminine hygiene products which has led women to resort to reportedly “using the insides of mattresses, cut-up dirty sheets and t-shirts” as a replacement to the products they need.
    • Bidenflation has caused tampons to rise by over 10 percent and pads to increase by 9 percent.
  • On top of a tampon shortage, Biden has overseen a baby formula shortage with the in stock rate dropping “to the lowest level so far this year” despite the Biden administration knowing about the crisis since last year.
    • Katie Thompson, a mother of two: “I don’t know how I’m going to feed my child … now going to the shelves and there’s nothing there … this is scary.”
    • Ashleigh, a Jacksonville mother whose son needs a specific formula: “I cannot get food for my child. I cannot feed my son.”
    • Democrats have resorted to blaming worried mothers “buying a lot” for the formula shortage.
  • It’s not just infants that mothers across the country are struggling to feed – moms are also having trouble feeding their families amid 40-year high inflation.
    • In North Carolina, a mother who resorted to a local food pantry said, “it’s devastating. Right now times [are] so hard to feed my kids." 
    • In Georgia, a mother and father are now confronted with the choice "don’t let the kids have seconds or forgo a meal themselves.”

DEMOCRATS CAN’T EVEN DEFINE WHAT A WOMAN IS

  • In April, Biden Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson was unable to define what a woman is, claiming she was “not a biologist.”
  • Biden’s FY 2021 and 2022 budgets replaced the word “mothers” with “birthing people.”
    • When questioned about using “birthing people” in the budget, Biden’s OMB Deputy Director Shalanda Young doubled down.  
  • Biden and Democrats’ radical “Build Back Broke” agenda repeatedly refers to mothers as “pregnant,” “lactating,” and “postpartum individuals.”
  • Biden’s CDC used the term “pregnant person” in their COVID-19 vaccine guidance.
  • Democrats have given a voice to the far-left radicals in their party who push these ideas:

BIDEN AND DEMOCRATS ATTACK WOMEN’S SPACES

  • Instead of standing for the rights of female students and athletes, Biden has caved to far-left, woke activists who want biological males to compete in women’s sports.
  • On the 50th anniversary of Title IX, Biden’s Department of Education “issued a new rule” which redefined the word “women.”
    • This move has “opened sex-segregated spaces like bathrooms, locker rooms, dorm rooms and single-sex admissions programs to anyone who identifies as a woman” and removed “commonsense” student protections in “campus sexual assault and harassment proceedings.”
  • This is ruining sports for female athletes, enabling biological men to compete and earn college scholarships at their expense.
    • Alanna Smith, a Connecticut high school track athlete forced to compete against biological males, said, “I felt like the race was over before I even began.” 
    • Madisan DeBos, a track athlete at Southern Utah University, said it is “heartbreaking” that all of her hard work could be stripped away by “allowing biological males to compete.”
  • In January, the Biden administration changed federal prison policy to let prisoners be incarcerated with the gender they identify as, including letting biological males be housed with female inmates.

DEMOCRATS WANT TO TAKE AWAY SUPPORT FOR VULNERABLE MOTHERS

  • Democrats have called to shut down the approximately 3,000 life-affirming pregnancy centers that help a mother throughout her pregnancy and after.
    • Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said “we need to put a stop” to crisis pregnancy centers “right now” and called for the centers to be “shut down… all around the country.”
    • Sen.Bob Mendez (D-NJ), Warren, and other prominent Democrats introduced legislation to “crack down” on crisis pregnancy centers that help women keep their babies.
    • Gov. Gretchen Witmer (D-MI) vetoed millions of dollars from going to crisis pregnancy centers and smeared these non-profit organizations as “fake health centers.”
