Women Academia Doesn’t Study

April 2, 2014, Malcolm A. Kline

Despite the breadth of attention that “women’s studies” get on campus, most of the information purveyed in them is, well, wrong.

“Twenty percent of Americans self-identify as feminists,” Karin Agness of the Network of Enlightened Women (NEW) said at the Heritage Foundation on Monday.  She gave the Huffington Post as her source, hardly a right wing web site.

Moreover, surveys show that women are less happy than they were 40 years ago, Agness notes, and, last year the Pew foundation found that only 37% of women want to work full-time.

Yet and still, women earn more degrees than men at every level, Agness said, citing information from the U. S. Department of Education. Moreover, all of the above contradicts media reports and women’s studies lectures most everywhere.

NEW is a network of young conservative women. Currently, they are active on 14 campuses and counting. Agness is a graduate of the University of Virginia (UVA).

“At UVA, I asked a faculty member who sponsored the women’s center if they would be interested in sponsoring a conservative women’s group on campus,” Agness remembered. “The faculty member chuckled and said, ‘not here.’” Perhaps she stumbled onto the ultimate source—academia—of the misinformation at the core of the so-called “war on women” controversy.

Agness will featured in Accuracy in Academia’s upcoming Massive Open Online Course on women’s studies.

Same question...what's not worth graduating with $50,000 or more of student debt after pursuing a degree in studies like this??

Actually, REAL feminists frequently don't 'identify' as such because of the filth of those who parade the name, but only care about abortions and being lesbian.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
