Women in power-- women take control of their own destinies

One thing I took from today's abortion argument is NEVER underestimate Sonia Sotomayor. Justice Sotomayor knows the record of every case better than anyone. And she will beat you mercilessly with it if you get it wrong.

Never underestimate a woman, much less a woman of color, who is at the top of a profession which is a centuries-old Bastion of white male dominance.

If the woman is there, she is smarter and has worked harder than the average man to get there who is in the same Supreme Court position.

Yes,  her  dissenting opinion will be interesting to read.

Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton and the sexist hypocrisy of the 'likability' media narrative.

Here we go again.

At this rate, the only likable female president will be one who doesn't want the job.
 
"The same day Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren announced plans to seek the 2020 Democratic nomination, the sexist media narratives of elections gone by staged a comeback in the form of a Politico article highlighting concerns that Warren may share too many “attributes” with Hillary Clinton to be “likable.”

For 2016 supporters of Clinton — who has often been described as “disconnected,” “flawed,” “polarizing,” and “unlikable”— the adjectives Politico ascribed to Warren sounded awfully familiar.

 

And yet, things were different just two years ago. While Clinton was still busy securing her spot in history as the first woman to win a major party’s nomination, some pundits lamented that the party had not chosen a more likable woman for the historic moment — a woman like, say, Elizabeth Warren.........

So what’s going on here? Has Warren become incredibly unlikable over the past two years? Or is this change more an indication of her growing power. High-achieving women, sociologist Marianne Cooper wrote in a 2013 Harvard Business Review article, are judged differently than men because “their very success — and specifically the behaviors that created that success — violates our expectations about how women are supposed to behave.” .......

“Warren and her hectoring, know-it-all style leaves” women disappointed, Democratic analyst Dan Payne wrote at the time, complaining that “all she does in her ads is complain about national problems,” and describing her as “preachy” and “lawyer-like.”

Payne suggested she “lose the granny glasses,” “soften the hair” and get coaching to “deepen her voice, which grates on some.” She should also practice “ a little modesty,” he said, and “stop the finger-wagging” because “it adds to her strict schoolmarm appearance and bossy manner.”............

 

In 2016, Bernie Sanders’ shouting, finger-wagging style often earned him praise for his “authenticity” and “passion.” Clinton was at times criticized as “passionless” for her “robotic” style, but showing emotion lead to worries that she was “shrill.”

When Warren wags her fingers, she doesn’t get to be the passionate, cool old guy like Sanders; men like Payne and GOP strategist Rick Wilson call her a schoolmarm for it.

Likability has long since outlived its speculative usefulness. And there is no clearer an example than Elizabeth Warren’s contradictory treatment in the press...........

Yea,    Dem women voters are either really stupid  or self-hating since they must be falling for this sexist MSM coverage of woman Presidential candidates.

Over 55% of Dem voters are women.       I guess these women don't like women with granny glasses!   (ha ha).

So yea,  here we go again;  women not supporting their own because,  well,   they are clueless.    Maybe they shouldn't be  allowed to vote!

3. Indeed, if a woman is actively seeking power (e.g. running for President) or perceived as seeking power,

she is less likely to receive votes.

This trend was NOT observed with men actively seeking power or perceived as seeking power.

4. A meta-analysis that examined various paradigms of masculinity & leadership showed that the stereotype of leadership is very intertwined with masculinity.

Even if a woman is qualified to lead, she may be disliked for seeking to lead.

Sound familiar?

this week came from the men at Bernie Sanders’ favorite socialist podcast, Chapo Trap House. On March 2, 2020, they devoted much of their SF live show to “Lyin’ loser Liz Warren,” repeatedly hissing at her like a snake.

Dr. Jill Biden took control of the situation when an out-of-control protester stormed the stage during her husband's (Joe Biden) acceptance speech for his Super Tuesday victories.

The photo says it all.

U.N. chief: Gender inequality biggest human rights challenge

“Deep-rooted patriarchy and misogyny have created a yawning gender power gap,” he says.

.......Guterres told the U.N.’s International Women’s Day observance Friday that “gender inequality is the overwhelming injustice of our day.”

“Deep-rooted patriarchy and misogyny have created a yawning gender power gap in our economies, our political systems, our corporations, our societies and our culture,” he said. “Women are still very frequently denied a voice; their opinions are ignored and their experience discounted.”..........

Twenty-five years after 189 countries adopted a 150-page road map for achieving equality for women, a new report by UN Women says the reality is that millions of women still face poverty, discrimination and violence. It notes over 70% of lawmakers and parliamentarians and managers are men and nearly 500,000 women and girls over the age of 15 are illiterate. .....

Pelosi is wrong as it relates to why the market crashed on Monday;   it was mostly due to the drop in oil prices to under $30,   since Saudi Arabia and Russia are in a oil war flooding the market with excess oil.      Either way she shouldn't try to make political gain over issues like these.

While the oil situation is part, the cornavirus is far more of a cause for the markets to "crash."  They are fearful of all the companies that will stop producing or servicing.  They are fearful of the products produced in foreign countries that will not reach US assembly plants.  US "manufacturing" is based on using parts produced in foreign countries.  They are fearful of people not showing up for work AND not showing up to purchase goods or services.

From what I have heard, the lowered oil prices was a reaction to the presumed market effects of the coronavirus.

JUST IN: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the House will vote today on a bill responding to the coronavirus outbreak, but she declined to say whether President Trump has backed the package.
 
Pelosi said the bill would include paid sick and family leave, expanded unemployment assistance, and nutrition assistance for children and seniors. She said the most important parts of the bill are “testing, testing, testing.”

Constitutionally all congressional money bills have to originate in the House of Representatives.

Senator McConnell pulled a fast one by getting out his weekend slush fund corporate fat cat stimulus package and not allowing the Democrats to participate in the structure of the legislation.

Now Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is going about it the Constitutional way and putting forth the Democratic legislation for the coronavirus stimulus and support for the average American worker and for American small businesses.

McConnell actually had the audacity to criticize and object to the Democrats demanding that hospitals and hospital workers be given priority in terms of equipment and money.

The GOP Fat Cats will have to wait in line because the Democrats intend to make sure that the average American who is most devastated by this pandemic will be supported and considered first.
