Pelosi: Women “Starved,” “Force-Fed,” “Could Barely Speak In Their Homes” In
The Islamic World America…
A Democrat bashing America? I guess there’s a first for everything.
Via CNS News:
Victims then, and victims now: American women were not “given” the right to vote. They had to fight for it, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told a conference call on Thursday.
“It was a struggle all the way,” she said. “Women marched. Women starved. Women were starved. Women were force-fed. Women could barely speak up in their own homes.
“Women left their homes to take the message. And it was successful, and the right to vote, again, so precious, so hard fought…We hope women will continue to exercise forcefully, because then all of the issues we care about, whether it’s equal pay for equal work, paid sick leave, affordable quality child care, raising the minimum wage, women’s health and — and safety issues will all be well-served.”
The point of the conference call was to promote the Democrats’ agenda, dubbed “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds.” Democrats aim to win the female vote by casting women as victims who — 94 years after the 19th Amendment was ratified — are still in need of government help.
