Inflation is at its highest level in decades. Store shelves are empty. The southern border is in chaos. Hundreds of Americans are still trapped in Afghanistan. China just tested a hypersonic missile. Employers can’t find workers to keep their businesses running. No wonder more than 60% say the country is going in the wrong direction.
But don't worry: President Joe Biden has a “National Gender Strategy” that will turn everything around.
The document, released last Friday, is every bit as ridiculous as it sounds. Identifying “gender equity” as a “moral and strategic imperative,” the strategy promises an “intersectional approach” that acknowledges “compounding forms of discrimination” including gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, age, and socioeconomic status. This “first ever National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality” will provide an “aspirational vision” and a “comprehensive agenda” to advance gender equity.
The agenda in the document is, at heart, the same tired laundry list of new government programs that progressives have been trying to force on the nation for decades using other specious justifications.
