By now you have heard of the Dem charge that the Republican Party is waging a War on Women. It's a totally bogus and phony charge. But considering how Democrats are treating their own women, and especially children, might the tables be turned?
CHARLOTTE (CBS Charlotte) — The Democratic National Committee is taking flak from women’s groups for the lack of child care that is being provided at the convention.
The Charlotte Observer reports that children will not be allowed access on the floor of the Democratic National Convention and that daycare will not be provided for delegates who bring their kids.
Women’s rights activist Gloria Steinem and several National Organization of Women chapters have called out the DNC for the “discrimination against mothers with young children.”
Delegate Susie Shannon feels the DNC is putting her in a tough position because she is bringing her 4-year-old along.
“The Democratic Party shouldn’t put you in a position where you have to choose between your child and participating in a political convention,” she told The Charlotte Observer.
Zoe Nicholson, president for the Pacific Shore NOW chapter, is calling for the DNC to end this “outdated practice.”
“We believe this practice of discrimination needs to end in 2012,” Nicholson told The Daily Caller. “This is the year for the Democratic leadership to demonstrate comprehensive support of women, ending this outdated practice and to state publicly that it supports true family values.”
Democrats discriminating against women and children. Wow! Who would have thought?
