2016: An Anti-Women Year?

But scientists? Record-breaking athletes? Leaders? Does. Not. Compute. Still! In 2016. From the lab to the Olympic podium to the Oval Office, America still has a problem with women when they’re good at the things men have long reserved for themselves.” – Petula Dvorak, “feminist” Washington Post columnist

As Crooked Hillary did not win the presidency, scribbler Dvorak has yet another political ax to grind. What else explains her boneheaded assessment that 2016 is somehow globally anti-woman? Like liar Hillary, apparently Ms. Dvorak has an aversion to truth-telling—and modern-day reality. Girl power is everywhere! What of the current resident at 10 Downing Street? British Prime Minister Theresa May doesn’t count as a leader? At home, how about Air Force general Lori Robinson: the highest ranking female in U.S. history—and the first woman as a combat commander? Further, three women are on the Supreme Court. Isn’t it hypocritical for Ms. Dvorak to accuse others of diminishing the contributions of women—when she completely ignores them?

In sport, why has she forgotten tennis pro Serena Williams? This year, Ms. Williams tied Steffi Graf’s historic open era record of 22 major championships. Likewise, how about another American phenom, Simone Biles? As the winner of four gold metals, she’s considered the “greatest gymnast of all time.” This breakout star of a team of women has established an Olympic legacy. Speaking of the Rio Games, U.S. women were the big winners: receiving 61 metals (to the men’s 55), 27 of them golds. In 2016, if these don’t count as record-breaking athletes to addled Dvorak, who does?

While it’s true that women have not been so publicly acknowledged in scientific circles, even that unfortunate dynamic has been commemorated in today’s highly rated movie, Hidden Figures. Given Ms. Dvorak’s jaded ’60s style mind-set, it’s no surprise she doesn’t pay attention to pro-woman box office trends. What else explains her failure to mention current number one Rogue One? That film features a brave, tough, and capable female lead, Jyn Erso (played by actress Felicity Jones).

Indeed, 21st century America is one of the most accepting cultures on earth. Therefore, griping liberals—promoting a false anti-woman narrative—are actually grievance-holding dinosaurs of a bygone era. At present, tolerance is the overwhelming rule, rather than the exception. As flawed and out of touch, such MSM misperceivers like Petula Dvorak should be pitied. Rightfully marginalized by current events—and a society that has evolved well beyond her. In truth, the “problem with women” is her own phantom menace. A sour grapes bogeyman of an ideologue’s fevered imagination.
