"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

New Study Reveals How 2008 Election Affected Girl Scouts

" * When questioned about the role of gender, both boys and girls have substantially increased their appreciation for the difficulties that women face in our society. 43 percent of girls today strongly believe that "girls have to work harder than boys in order to gain positions of leadership," a statement that just 25 percent of girls agreed with just a year ago.
* The percentage of girls who believe that "in our society, it is more difficult to become a leader for a woman than a man," has increased from 23 percent in 2007 to 37 percent in 2008.
* The percentage of girls who believe that "today both men and women have an equal chance of getting a leadership position" has declined from 35 percent to 24 percent between 2007 and 2008.
* Strikingly, despite becoming more aware of obstacles women face, more than four in 10 girls (41 percent) say that the election has had a positive impact on their desire to be a leader.
* While one in three young people believe that Obama was held to a higher standard because of his race, 48 percent believe that ultimately race helped him in the elections."'

  1. I am gla to see hat the kids paid attention. probably got more than some of the parents.

  2. What is really fascinating, to me, about all this is how much of it was taken in by young girls. They knew what they were seeing... even as the "Yes We Can" Kool-ade pushers did their best to dupe them.

    After all the MSM did to take down Hillary, and then to Sarah. It is amazing that these young women do not feel they should give up. They apparently feel encouraged by Hillary and Sarah, even as they recognize the unfair treatment.
