3 MORE instances of MEN taking misogynistic action on things affecting only women in this millennium

by jovan1984

As you may well know, I wrote a post this morning about more men happily signing laws taking away women’s rights.

Here are three more incidences of misogynistic action being taken on issues affecting only women, since the millennium began on January 1, 2000.

May 22, 2013


Eight men were photographed discussing a national ban on abortions after eighteen weeks. No women in sight.

February 16, 2012

Five men were photographed in a hearing on birth control, which must be covered by all insurance companies under the Affordable Care Act. No women testified in this hearing.

October 28, 2003

Like Gov. Kasich’s photo, this photo had seven men in it, when then-President George W. Bush signed a bill into law (eventually upheld by the Supreme Court) that banned late-term abortions for any reason nationwide. The law has no exceptions for women’s health, nor does it have any exceptions to preserve the life of the mother, making Gonzales v. Carhart a radical departure from what the Supreme Court previously said about Roe vs. Wade’s limitations.
