The week brought with it a series of incidents where ‘women’ became the talk of the day. It began with a conservative lawmaker who passed a sexist and vulgar comment at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in the Capitol. This incident was followed by a series of pessimistic headlines. Also, a few House Republicans began criticizing Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.). Cheney is one of those few women in the conference with GOP and the only female leader. She was being criticized for not following all the orders of President Donald and to have gone against him.
Later on, the tweet by President Trump regarding support from the end of the ‘suburban housewives of America’ was looked at scornfully. These series of events drew the attention of the audience from all over the nation. The Republicans and the Democrats were having a hard time trying to convince that the women voters were not treated to be isolated beings from the society. Many believed that these events showed disrespect towards women.
“These are proof points about, I think, profound disrespect for women and a failure to understand the particular challenges of women, whether it’s in the workforce, or at home, or on health care,” said Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), who heads House Democrats’ messaging arm.
