Will Trump take the USA backward or forward with women's rights?

    Will Trump take the USA backward or forward with women's rights?

    Some editorials accuse Trump of being sexist but some of his staff members say he supports women's rights. What do you think?

    Where are women's rights today after 8 years of Obama and 8 years of GW Bush, and 8 years of Bill Clinton and 4 years of GH Bush?

    Where is the line today? If we don't know where it is today, then how do you know how president Trump will affect it?

    Do we even know what Women's rights are at all?
    Hillary Clinton thought that she had a Right to president because she was a woman, and the country never had a women president. Somewhat similar to Barack Obama, although he was only half black. Hillary is most likely all woman.

    Marcy, maybe you could write a hub on it, as the question as asked is vague and ambiguous. Not a slam, just an opinion.
    ? Should all people get the same pay, like the $15 minimum, or should pay be given on merits. Equal pay for equal work and performance.
    ? Aren't there women out there that get more pay than they are worth, just because they are a female.
    ? How many men are not getting the same pay as other men
    Isn't the workplace more true to saying,"It is not what you know but who you know"?
    ?Could it be possible that men on average get more pay because more men have been in the work place longer than most women. And even the men get screwed by other men.
    Just to mention a few. Feel free to delete my comment for any reason.

    Can't go any further backwards than giving women the right to murder their own baby in the womb for no reason other than the baby is an inconvenience.

    Hopefully Trump can find the strength to bring us out of the dark ages on this subject and allow the constitution to be interpreted as it was written and not as the SC in 1973 ruled succumbing to Judicial activism.

    Roe v. Wade is the single-most destructive Supreme Court ruling in history. It is responsible for the death of over 55 million human lives, and harming millions of women and men whose “choice” has caused death, regret, and an unfulfilled “promise” of “equality”. The supremely wrong decision (like many other Supreme Court rulings in American history) allowed the killing of an unborn child through the 7th month of pregnancy (the point of viability). Based on a complete lie (Jane Roe had originally claimed she had been raped) the justices never even heard from the actual plaintiff. She was merely a pawn. Jane Roe is actually Norma McCorvey. Many people don’t realize that she actually gave birth to her child and allowed her to be adopted and loved. Due to the influence of pro-life advocates, in 1995, everything changed.  She became a Christian (Roman Catholic) and was Roe no more. Today, McCorvey passionately defends women and their unborn children and is fighting to overturn Roe v. Wade.

    This case is activist because the Supreme Court relies upon notions of living constitutionalism, invoking the doctrine of “substantive due process” to create a right that is nowhere to be found in the text of the Constitution.  This doctrine, which was established in Dred Scott v. Sandford, is the prime example of judges reading broad constitutional terms divorced from any textual or originalist moorings, thereby making them empty vessels into which they can pour any policy preferences they desire.  The Due Process Clause, which is now being used by judges as a “judicial wildcard,” was simply meant to protect the citizens from government abuse by ensuring that no one be deprived of life, liberty, or property except by a fair process.  The fact that the Court has used the word “substantive” to describe a clause that is clearly about process creates an anachronism that defies language and logic.  The Court in Roe wields the Clause to support abortion rights without any reasoned  justification: after citing previous Supreme Court cases that erroneously established a broad constitutional right to privacy, the Court blithely asserted that this right “is broad enough to encompass a woman's decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy.”

      My former female employer, a diehard feminist and a Republican as she was wont to say, "down to my smallest toe," had a theory about why it is MEN are the most vocal about abortion. Here is what she said, "Men believe they are giving women "something" as a "gift" when men impregnate women. That's why they are so vociferous when women dare to end a pregnancy. To these men, the woman is refusing their "gift" and that makes them angry."

      Of course, women today will fight to be able to control their own bodies. But, how about if we women control men's bodies? You think they'll allow that? You bet not. So what are men really talking about?

      There are women who MUST have abortions. I know 2 of them who had "tubal pregnancies." One of the two didn't know she was even pregnant and ended up in the hospital when her fallopian tube nearly burst.

      Ask any man or his financially dependent wife about this and you get a blank stare. So, my suggestion is for these men and women to have a bowling ball surgically implanted into their colons. Let's see how fast they change their attitudes about abortion.

      Need a definition of men's rights? I think as the sister to 5 brothers and half brothers, 1 ex, 2 sons, 11 nephews and having worked in the all male sales and engineering environments and closely with male CEOs, men need LESS not more rights.

      Men today want to be boss. Not when women are paying taxes on their incomes EQUAL to a man's. The more men push that bossy, overbearing attitude, sexually molest women in the workplace and prey on teen girls ala Roy Moore and Trump, the more angry women become.

      So, let's talk about why men need less rights. First? When you see a meeting called to discuss women's rights in Congressional sessions and there isn't a single woman on that committee, the first right to reduce from men is to remove their noses in women's lives.

      Then, men need to stop pretending they know anything about how a woman's body functions and why. How dare any man tell a woman what her body can and can't do. I say, let's start telling men what they can and can't do with THEIR bodies.

      If power is the only validation for male existence, that's a poor excuse for MANHOOD.

    Neither - President Trump takes a lot a flak from people who think he's against women, but in reality, he's just a crude dude; like a large percentage of American men (argue all you want, but men are men and they talk terrible, get braggadocio, and embellish a wee bit too much from time to time.)  Trump is  going to be less involved in social programs than anyone will expect because he'll be focused on the economy, jobs, and building the wall.  He will be shaking the trees in DC to root out corruption and graft and focus on doing the right thing.  He's not out to get gays, women, or any other special interest groups, BUT, they won't be getting special treatment or extra rights, like they do now.  They'll be treated just like every other freedom loving taxpayer, unless they take up arms against him and demand something more, things should be good for them under his leadership.

    Definitely forward, with Hillary she would just be feeding the delusion that women get paid 70 cents to a man's dollar or whatever that phony fact is. Trump promotes hard work, and he treats everyone the same, that is exactly what women want right? Yes Trump doesn't stand for abortion, but he is well aware planned parenthood gives women good healthcare, so he won't scrap the funding of planned parenthood for the parts not related to abortion. Also, Trump recognizes the Radical Islamic Terrorist threat. Keeping those people out of our Country is a great service for women, as well as homosexuals. I know I wouldn't feel too good to have people that actually think I should be punished for not covering up all my skin. And people that believe the wife should always listen to the husband. Feminism is needed in the middle east, not here. Like I've seen some people mention Trump has a history of hiring women in the past to administrative jobs that people never would have given to women at the time. Many people say he is sexist because it was just a character attack widely used on him, but if you look back at his actions, they really show something else. The future looks promising

The left-wing-nut haters spewing venom are just unhinged at losing Congress, state houses, presidency, governors, local offices and soon, the Supreme Court.

    It is interesting that the only rights liberals defend are sexual - that others pay for sex change operations, abortions, never judge someone badly for having affairs or sex out of wedlock, pay for the children others create outside an intact family (collective responsibility for personal irresponsibility).
    But freedom to express your opinion, freedom of association, economic opportunities from a strong economy, freedom to build your home as you choose and eat what you'd like ... all those freedoms liberals don't care about and actually want to deny us because they know so much better than the rest of us.
    Trump is in favor of broader personal freedoms by reducing the size of the state. It is the political left that says it gets to micromanage your life down to banning words and telling you what clothing and hair styles you are allowed to wear.
    In that regard, Trump will improve EVERYONE's rights, men and women.
    Suppose the state no longer subsidizes sexual freedom, you will remain free to pay for your own abortion, sex change, etc. You can still have a child out of wedlock but may not receive as many benefits paid for by the rest of us, encouraging adoption instead of more single motherhood.
    But you won't be able to take my money to pay for it or demand the state force me to be silent about either the act itself or my money used to pay for it.

    Trump may take the USA back into alignment for equal rights for women with men. Ladies if we are being honest, the pendulum of rights under the past decade has swung past the mid point and is now more pro women than pro male. At least that is what I see in high schools and in companies with college degree based jobs.

    More young girls are getting college scholarships than boys. More girls are in the top 10% of their high school class ranking than boys in most schools. While this is not a bad thing I wonder what is causing this change.

    At work, the diversity & inclusion programs as well as government's protected race and gender rights clearly give LBGQ, women and select non-white men a strong platform and backing that others do not have. I have seen others get raises due to falsely stating that they are gay in order to better protect their employment. I have seen women promoted above men or get jobs over better qualified men many times just because they are women. I see executive men afraid of speaking their mind out of fear of the D&I group at work. I believe this is wrong and I saw it happen at BP.

    I believe Trump's team may reverse some of this activity similar to what he is doing with the broken ACA healthcare system. 

    While I believe Trump probably thinks of attractive women as pleasure units to men and are also for having babies, most successful men have similar thoughts whether we like it or not.

    I do not believe in abortion for me, but do not find fault in most woman that choose to have an abortion. That decision is between her and her doctor and her God. I recall Trump saying something very similar to this himself? 

    In fact I wonder WHY, if trump is such a serial misogynist, why no recent complaints or lawsuits against him exist for sexual harassment? All the dozen or so complaints during the campaign were about 10+ years old incidents. None were recent - this seems suspicious and makes the trump's defense of "fake news" potentially believable. 

    Anyway I think Trump will take the USA somewhat backward with women's rights but if handled carefully that may not be such a bad thing. Parts of the women and gay movement have gone too far and may be getting corrupted similar to what happened with labor unions. We will have to wait and see what happens.

        You always know when a wife batterer like Steve Bannon says, "Women are going to change society," what he really fears most is loss of his manhood if women outnumber men in government.

        Real men have no such fear of loss of manhood. These days, they can't afford to when their spouse or partner is providing that nice cushion of second income.

          Ewent, women are becoming more powerful than ever.  They know that having their own career & income is instrumental in that power.  Women who have no outside careers nor income have no power in the household, they are subjected to the husband's rules & dictates. They have no say in the household whereas women who have careers & income have POWER in the household along with the husband.

          While many men desire, even WANT their wives to be equally contributing members of the household, there are men who by their infantile need for control, want women to be silent vessels so to speak.  Such men want their women to obey & submit.  They don't want a powerful woman.  Women realize that if they want more power, they have to run for political office.

    Trump won't take women anywhere... WOMEN will move themselves forward, or backward, collectively, as they see fit.

    Trump is nothing but a reflection of the people on this Nation, just like Obama was.

    People supported Obama, what he stood for in total if not in particular, but his swing of extremes... to ignore blaming radical islam or even saying such words, to supporting BLM while denouncing the Police, embracing Cuba and Venezuela while frowning on England and overthrowing former allies in Egypt... so the pendulum swings the other way, because people start to fear the changes going on around them.

    And when the changes around them are Police getting murdered everywhere, and people being slaughtered in the name of a religion here in America as well as Europe, and the rest of the country watching CA being over-run by millions of illegals and the government there capitulating and giving them licenses and voting rights... then yes, not only was Trump a foregone conclusion... we should all be thankful that he is NOT anything like what the 'media' tries to make him out to be, he is not the next Hitler, not the next Stalin... because there are plenty of Americans that would have supported someone much closer to that extreme in an effort to protect themselves from the 'changes' brought on over the last eight years.
