So now the intrepid Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and other Democratic lawmakers are pushing a resolution to recognize that climate change hurts women more than men. According to Lee, climate change affects agricultural output which has a “disparate impact” on women. Among other things, the resolution will
affirm the commitment to include and empower women in economic development planning and international climate change policies and practices.
Wow, it’s good to see members of Congress and other leaders, such as the intrepid Hillary Clinton (still “fighting” for gender equality), “acting” to ameliorate the plight of women around the world. Hmm, maybe next we’ll see the DOJ go beyond a resolution and file a lawsuit against “climate change” under its beloved disparate impact theory of discrimi-nation (paging King Xerxes).
Of course, the biggest threat to women worldwide are actions by misogynists that oppress and enslave women in such places, for example, as the Middle East. But liberals don’t seem to be offering resolutions or making speeches explicitly condemning this real threat to women. No, that would take courage – it’s much better to posture over the easy target. After all, there’s no one to strike back.
