White House Counsel on Women and Girls

You should be worried. Very worried. Not only do we have a socialist president, we have a feminist president. Indeed, we now have a White House Counsel on Women and Girls.

Obama family looms large at women's panel launch
Mar 11 06:02 PM US/Eastern

President Barack Obama Wednesday paid poignant tributes to the grandmother who raised him and his mother who died of cancer, at the launch of a high-level forum to advise him on women's issues.

Obama also held up the life story of his wife and "rock" Michelle and the example of his foe turned ally, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as he signed an executive order creating the White House Council on Women and Girls.

"The purpose of this Council is to ensure that American women and girls are treated fairly in all matters of public policy," Obama said. The council will meet regularly, he said, and will include Clinton, Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Attorney General Eric Holder among other members, Obama said.

"I sign this order not just as a president, but as a son, a grandson, a husband and a father," Obama said. He cited the example of his mother, Ann Dunham, who educated herself even while she worried about paying the bills and cared for Obama and his sister as a single parent.
Obama also recalled the example of his grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, who worked hard in the corporate world, but then hit a glass ceiling and saw less qualified men get jobs ahead of her. "I've seen Michelle, the rock of the Obama family, juggling work and parenting with more skill and grace than anybody that I know," he said. "I had the privilege of participating in a historic campaign with a historic candidate who we now have the privilege of calling Madam Secretary."

The new council will work to ensure each
government agency is directly orientated to improving the economic status of women and to try to frame policies that establish a balance between work and family.

It will also work with the vice president's office and the Justice Department to seek ways to halt violence against women in the United States and abroad, and work to improve women's healthcare.

So in addition to government handouts, Obama and his cronies are now going to "assure that women and girls are treated fairly in matters of public policy." What era does this man think he's living in?

He's also going to "help women balance work and family," "improve women's health care," and "improve the economic status of women." Give me a break. I knew it was only a matter of time before Obama fell prey to feminist pandering. Judging by this newly formed counsel, he honestly believes women are an oppressed group of victims who need special care. He must be under the impression that violence against women in America is at an all-time high, too. Once again, this man doesn't do his homework. He simply does what he's told.
