In honor of Women’s History Month, the Independent Women's Forum (IWF) is hosting Women Making History, an exclusive event on Wednesday, March 22nd, at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, DC.Yup...you read that snip of a press release right. The man who help cause an HIV outbreak in Indiana is getting an away for working for women. I'm surprised this press release didn't mention his possible influence in sending a hate group to the 61st annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. "The Center for Family and Human Rights (C-FAM) is a think tank that has been labelled as a “hate group” for their international anti-LGBTQI advocacy work and violent rhetoric by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a legal advocacy organisation which specialises in protection of civil rights."
Vice President Mike Pence will be honored with the inaugural IWF Working for Women Award. The award recognizes an individual who values free markets, works to create a more dynamic and innovative work world, and celebrates the valuable contributions women make to society.
I know that IWF is not a progressive feminist organization. They value the free market over feminism. But it still irks me that Pence is getting an award touting him as a champion for women when he is otherwise. He is so bad for women that many of us refuse to consider impeachment for Trump!
So Happy Freaking Women's History Month! At the rate this administration is going, it could be our last before we're all sent back to the kitchen.
