George W. Bush and the War on Women: Turning Back the Clock on Progress

Overview

This book takes a devastating look at the actions and policies of the Bush administration in terms of their impact on women in the United States and abroad. Surprisingly, this is a largely ignored aspect of Bush's presidency, even though his policies have in many ways reversed women's progress over the past three decades. While the media has focused on his opposition to abortion, Bush's less-publicized anti-feminist agenda has been much more extensive. He has opposed women's interests in multiple ways, from ...

Overview

This book takes a devastating look at the actions and policies of the Bush administration in terms of their impact on women in the United States and abroad. Surprisingly, this is a largely ignored aspect of Bush's presidency, even though his policies have in many ways reversed women's progress over the past three decades. While the media has focused on his opposition to abortion, Bush's less-publicized anti-feminist agenda has been much more extensive. He has opposed women's interests in multiple ways, from shutting down women's offices in the government to de-funding programmes that assist women, from opposing global women's rights treaties to supporting anti-feminist organizations. Contrary to his public claims that 'W stands for Women,' his policies, appointments and actions reveal a strongly patriarchal bent. The book also includes a chapter on the negative effects on women of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
