The republicans have blocked the Equal pay bill for women and Physical abuse against women. What makes women vote Republican anyway?

Despite the persistent gender gap in opinion polls and mounting criticism of their hostility to women’s rights, Republicans are not backing off their assault on women’s equality and well-being. New laws in some states could mean a death sentence for a pregnant woman who suffers a life-threatening condition. But the attack goes well beyond abortion, into birth control, access to health care, equal pay and domestic violence.

    how does one define equal pay ? and does not the employee set the minimum wage as does the employer set the maximum wage?

    Equal pay is doing the same job as another and getting paid the same. Same job same pay. doesn't matter what the minimum and maximum is it is about qualification. If a man starts a job the same time as a woman for the same beginning pay and they both have exemplary records, and the man ends up getting a 30% increase in pay and the woman does not that is inequality in pay.

    how do you measure "doing the same job" is that based on production/output, subordination, appearance , respect ,attitude ,work ethic ??? And is a employer not allowed to pay someone “more” just because they choose to. Maybe one person is not being paid less but the other is being paid more.

    Maybe they see through BS and just vote for the person whose policies they support the most.

    C'mon this is a black and white vote. Either you care enough to stop spousal abuse or not. What BS are you talking about? Blocking this vote blocks prosecution for partner abuse. Are you really for beating up on your wife?

    Beating my wife is already against the law. Sounds like it's redundant.

    South Carolina's dumb laws pertaining to women are controversial, on the one hand, making it a great place for a woman to live, while on the other hand, not so much.

    If a man promises to marry an unmarried woman in South Carolina, then by law, that marriage must take place. This dumb law could legally enable marriage minded females to snag a husband by less than ethical means. Those same marriage minded females need to be aware that it is perfectly legal for husbands to beat their wives on the steps of the courthouse on Sundays.

    TOPEKA, Kan. — Over the past month, one by one, people suspected in domestic battery cases in northeast Kansas have been set free with no charges against them. Prosecutors say they're overwhelmed with felonies and, faced with budget cuts, can't afford to pursue the cases.

    Busted budgets have forced tough decisions by governments and law enforcement officials nationwide, but the Shawnee County district attorney's move to stop investigating domestic abuse and other misdemeanor cases has angered victims' advocates who say austerity has gone too far

    Your avatar looks like your bored. You now what ? you have a computer??? but you probably won't check to see if it's true. "If" your a woman and you get yourself a violent man you will probably just have to suck it up. Nice self esteem.
