GOP War on Women = Growing Wave for Hillary

As conservative Republicans continue to attack women’s rights, alienating a powerful voting bloc, there has been a growing counteroffensive wave that is giving woman activists on the other side a larger voice and greater visibility since the early struggle for women’s rights and activism.

Wendy Davis, the state Senator from Texas, has exploded onto the national spotlight since filibustering against Texas’ restrictive abortion bill. Her eleven hour filibuster has galvanized the Texas Democratic Party and women groups nationally.

While international organizations are joining forces to end the oppression of women and girls worldwide and enact laws to advance equality, here in the United States, Republicans attacks continue on women through a variety of issues designed to turn back the clock on women’s issues and rights.

The revival of the angry American women may be underway as current legislation threatens the very health of women. Could the growing wave of support for Hillary Clinton make her the lightening rod to galvanize women into action and victory?

Women are showing up to fight and Hillarys’ name is spoken more and more in regards as the frontrunner of the 2016 Presidential Campaign. Escalating attacks on women in Congress and state legislatures may backfire on Republicans as it has jolted many women into action, awakened sleeping liberals and moderates and moved them to protest in the U.S. Senate and House while galvanizing thousands of ordinary women to speak out and take action.

Conservatives have moved to cut off U.S. government aid to Planned Parenthood on grounds that it was funneling taxpayer money to facilitate abortions. An earlier decision by the leading U.S. breast cancer charity, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation, to sever ties with Planned Parenthood was abandoned when thousands of people threatened to withhold donations to the foundation.

Not long after that bruising fight, conservatives in Congress tried to roll back access to contraception under employer health plans, they even attempted to garner support from opposition for such a mandate for President Obama’s health care law best known as ObamaCare. A Republican-led House committee even convened a hearing made up of an all-male panel called to testify, but a female Georgetown University law student who wanted to speak for the mandate was banned from testifying. To make things worse, she was called a “slut” and a “prostitute” by a conservative radio.

The Republican ignorance only gets worse as a financial supporter of Rick Santorum, the anti-abortion rights and anti-contraceptives Republican presidential candidate, suggested that “gals” could prevent pregnancies by putting an aspirin “between their knees.” And in Virginia, the Republican governor supported a state bill to require that women seeking abortions undergo invasive vaginal ultrasounds. (He eventually backed down but states like Ohio and Tennessee are considering similar measures.) And recent legislation in several states only gets more [Taliban like] extreme as wing-nut Republicans attempt to outmaneuver each other with backwoods legislation of ignorance.

Amidst this backdrop, a remarkable groundswell is building for Hillary Rodham Clinton to run for president of the United States in 2016. Partly a fallout of the Republican “war on women” and partly as result of her soaring stature and unquestionable qualifications— the Clinton wave is fast rising. Many political pundits point to another interesting fact— Hillary Clinton may be the most qualified person to ever run for President.

If you examine the role and impact of women in society, it appears the perfect storm, somewhat attributed to Republican ignorance, may be brewing across America.

The former U.S. secretary of state is the world’s best known woman and ranks at the top of America’s most popular public figures. Her stock has only skyrocketed since she ran for president in 2008.

Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leader and the former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives joined the Hillary supporters a couple of days ago, saying, and “I would love to see Secretary Clinton become the nominee for president in 2016.”

Recently, Hillary stoked the fires of excitement, speaking to a large gathering of women; she called for “an audacious” fight against “extremists” who would take women’s rights away. She had 2,000 women on their feet, in wild enthusiasm for a very long time.

Will Hillary lead the angry women of American into wild enthusiasm in the 2016 election? Will Republicans attempt to paint Hillary as an old woman only fuel the burning wildfire of angry women’s in America? If you are on fire for Hillary, join here now.
