Overview

This book takes a devastating look at the actions and policies of the George W. Bush administration in terms of their impact on women in the United States and abroad. A largely ignored aspect of his presidency, Bush's policies and actions have in many ways reversed or inhibited women's progress over the past three decades. While the media have focused on his opposition to abortion, Bush's less-publicized anti-feminist agenda has in fact been much more extensive. From shutting down women's offices in the government to de-funding programs that assist women, from opposing global women's rights treaties to supporting anti-feminist organizations. the author argues that Bush has opposed women's interests in multiple ways.
