What Women Want...

"...Benenson Strategy Group recently conducted a survey, which included 801 online interviews between February 10-15 among women who were likely to vote in 2022. Forty-three percent of the respondents identified as Democrats; 33 percent identified as Republicans and 24 percent identified as independents. The margin of error is 3.5 percent.





Lindsay Vermeyen, senior vice president at Benenson, said the level of political disengagement among parents of young children is significant: 56 percent of parents with children under 5 years old.


'It’s probably not new news that parents are burned out,' she said. 'But this just really reinforces that parents, especially of kids who haven’t been able to get vaccinated, are really feeling left behind.'


The findings around the economy also stood out to Vermeyen: Half of the women interviewed said their financial situation had worsened since the start of the pandemic, an 11-point increase compared to last year.


'We are seeing that women are feeling less and less like they can continue to do it all,' she said.


The survey data previews American women’s concerns ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. When asked about what they considered the most important issues in deciding who to vote for, 36 percent listed the economy, a similar figure to polling data released last year. But inflation and health care tied for third at 26 percent. (The pandemic was second at 27 percent.)


The survey also shows women continue to widely support improvements to the country’s health care systems. More than 80 percent of women continue to believe the pandemic has exposed more flaws in America’s health care system and that it needs to be improved. That includes support for programs like Medicaid, Medicare and the Affordable Care Act and policies like paid sick leave and paid family leave. That support has increased among Republican women, from 62 percent last year to 73 percent this year..."



Women are, IMO, the touchstones in our society at this point...and maybe they always are.  They have borne the brunt of the pandemic...being knocked out of the work force and having to shoulder the burden of childcare when schools and daycare facilities have had to shutter or suffer schedule upheavals.  The fact that many women are disconnecting from the political process at this point is a frightening prospect for our country.  We are at a tipping point as a nation and we need all the voters we can get to turn out for the next two elections.

Some more telling findings from that study...


"...Three in 4 Democrats and more than half of Independents want to see more women in office. (More than half Republican women respondents thought there was just the right amount of women in elected office.)


Beyond elections, the survey also showed that 7 in 10 women thought President Joe Biden should uphold a commitment to nominate a Black woman to the U.S. Supreme Court. The polling was conducted before Biden announced he would nominate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the high court..."

Broadening the topic a bit...


What women want is a husband who will leap to defend them against "Anything For A Laugh" comedians like Chris Rock.  The tone-deaf comics who rationalize themselves as "provocateurs" are gonna have to face the fact that sooner or later they will be confronted impolitely by somebody they provoke.  BTW, that goes for politicians casting themselves in the same mold.

LOL...clear indication chivalry is dead.. We are not talking about opening doors, or offering an arm just common courtesy. I recall as a retiree meeting a friend for lunch in the city and stopping at Trader Joes/farmers markets for a couple of bags of goodies.  While attempting to adjust my bags to sit on the train, I was jostled and shoved aside by a young man as he sat down in front of me focused on his cell phone not at all embarrassed with what occurred.  And the only person to offer a pregnant gal a seat is another gal. 


Once a stranger offers a hand to carry my heavy packages ( I don't buy more than what I can manage to carry Laughing), I just think he'll run off with it or worse mug me while entering my house....lol.  These days, you can't be too careful...SealedFoot in Mouth

To say the least, i hate award shows. If I'm inclined to have interest, I'll spend a few minutes online instead of a few hours watching a parade of artist in their fineries.


Not getting why a big deal is made over a slap. Guess I have to watch it to get the full picture.


Now is Kamala Harris slaps Trump with fury and his hair is flying, I'll paid to watch that....Laughing

The whole Will Smith/Chris Rock thing was disgraceful.  First of all I don't think that Will Smith would have won if it wasn't for Jada's #oscarssowhite.  Smith is charismatic and good at comedies and action movies.  When he tries to do accents it sounds like Will Smith trying to do an accent.  It's easy to say that all things being equal Denzel Washington or Javier Bardem would have won.  There is never any issue when a comedian makes fun of a man's hair or lack thereof. Even trying to conceal it invites ridicule.  Chris Rock basically made the same joke that Will Smith once made about the bass player on Arsenio Hall's show.  Smith was even laughing until he saw his wife's expression.


I am not a psychologist but I think that Will Smith is a broken man and the smack and yelling that Chris Rock endured was lashing out of pent up frustration at how his wife publically cuckolds him.  I am sure it started with him being unfaithful and she would have been justified to leave him.  I think few would find their marriage ideal and it is probably borderline mutually mentally abusive.


It says alot that Chris Rock apologized to Wanda Sykes for the distraction from her evening and Will Smith did not.  If we believe it is okay to physically lash out at comedians then comedy is dead.  Judging by late night it died a few years ago.

Really, who in the hell really cares about Smith/Rock ?? What do you think about Mr. and Ms. Thomas ?? Now that's what should be on every front page not some movie star's BS...
