It’s not hard to figure out what Trump thinks about women.  Do any of you need reminders?  Include in his dim-witted, knuckle dragging club: Mike Pence, Ben Carson, and a large part of Trump’s deranged base including the  Evangelicals.

From Trump’s plans to defund planned parenthood to today’s executive order to roll back Obama’s mandate to include birth control in workplace health programs, Women will continue to be under attack by this administration even if they aren’t within arms reach of Trump himself for a good pussy grab (dark sarcasm absolutely intended).

Just days ago, Congress allowed Chip to expire, which will remove 9 million children from health coverage.  That’s 9 million.  Not seeing this reported much.

He has also rolled back some women’s protections in the workplace by executive order:

“With little notice, President Donald Trump recently signed an executive order that advocates say rolls back hard-fought victories for women in the workplace.
On March 27, Trump revoked the 2014 Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces order then-President Barack Obama put in place to ensure that companies with federal contracts comply with 14 labor and civil rights laws. The Fair Pay order was put in place after a 2010 Government Accountability Office investigation showed that companies with rampant violations were being awarded millions in federal contracts.
In an attempt to keep the worst violators from receiving taxpayer dollars, the Fair Pay order included two rules that impacted women workers: paycheck transparency and a ban on forced arbitration clauses for sexual harassment, sexual assault or discrimination claims.”

An overview of ways Trump plans on destabilizing women.

Congratulations to the women that voted for trump.  Your normalizing his abusiveness, your anger at Washington, and your lazy investigation or avoidance of the facts are paying off in spades for you.
