Today on Friday politics: This week Carly Fiorina became the second female candidate to announce she’s running for President in 2016. She is seeking the Republican nomination.
When asked about women’s issues, Ms. Fiorina now famously quipped:
“I find it personally insulting as a woman that the Democratic Party talks about women’s issues,” she said. “Every issue’s a women’s issue. Women care about the economy. They care about jobs. They care about health care. They care about immigration, national security, education, every issue is a woman’s issue.”
Several commentators have suggested that her comments were merely an attempt to side-step her own antithetical record on traditional women’s issues, like birth control and equal pay. But others think she was right to point out the hypocrisy of suggesting certain issues are inherently more important to women than the population in general.
