Carly Fiorina Offends Feminists: 'Liberals have FAILED women...'
See, this is why we love Carly Fiorina. She was recently asked about paid maternity leave, and said she didn't support a new federal law which would mandated it. Liberals of course acted like liberals, lied, and claimed Fiorina opposed paid maternity leave. Fiorina is the actual feminist that all the fake feminists love to hate. We dig it.
The Huffington Post offered one example of this brazen misreporting.
So Carly Fiorina responded to the Huffington Post...in the Huffington Post.
Liberal policies maintain the status quo, which means, for example, that they are against over-the-counter birth control. (By the way, when Claritin moved over the counter, the price was cut in half in less than a year. Now, a month's supply cost $3.)
Most recently, the Left wants the government to mandate compensation and leave policies. Last week, Netflix announced that they would offer unlimited paid leave for a year to new parents. When I was at Hewlett Packard from 1999 to 2005, we also offered paid maternity and paternity leave because we wanted to compete for the best workers.
When I was asked about their policy this week, the Left was instantly outraged that I didn't believe the federal government should require all companies to pay for leave.
In other countries, these mandates have discouraged employers from hiring and promoting women. After such mandates were in place in Spain, companies were 6 percent less likely to hire women, 37 percent less likely to promote them, and 45 percent more likely to fire them. Even the liberal Center for American Progress has said that, with these policies, "it becomes much easier to justify discrimination."
Take notes, other candidates. She didn't stumble or backtrack. She didn't call up HuffPo to complain, whine and call them losers. Instead she responded with a detailed rebuttal and dismantled the liberal mantra of maternity leave. One that no doubt has offended many, many SJW feminists if you dare read their comment section. These SJW feminists can't even fathom that a successful women doesn't want to be sheltered under the umbrella of third-wave feminism.
Carly Fiorina (honey badger) don't care.
