I am curious how Sutherland Institute (which I support) knows that Millennial
women are not voicing their concerns, and why they are not asking Millennial men
to do the same? As a baby boomer, at the other end of my mortality, I am
disappointed somewhat in both brands of Millennials. I am well involved in the
local politics of Utah County, and while I see a few Millennials, their
participation is certainly well below their percentage of the population. Yes,
they may be busy with work (as am I) or their family (but I'm busy as a
grandfather :-), etc., but their future is being decided by older people. When
I attend county level events, there are more female Millennials than male, but I
can count the number on one hand. If they would show up at the rare precinct
meetings and as visitors to their political brand of County meetings, they could
become much better educated on matter that should be important to them.And as for the anti-Trump content-free messages above, I would love for these
two people to identify exactly which Trump policy or action they object to.
Higher employment and wages for women? Lower unemployment for African Americans
and Hispanics? I'm curious.
Thank you for writing this. I think it's a great example of how gender
issues and feminism can be depoliticized--this is something I think people of
any political party can agree with! (As opposed to the uber-liberal feminism
USAlover mocked in their comment.)Fun fact: The Economist's
Intelligence Unit uses % of females in elected office as a measure of political
participation in its famous Democracy Index. To get full points in political
participation (which only Norway has done), at least 20% of your elected
officials have to be women.
Do Millennial Women like being called "women"? Isn't that
offensive in someway? I heard "Wo" is better....no "men".There are now 6 genders, in case you didn't know that.
Millenial LDS women should discuss it with their fellow LDS. Tell them how
dangerous Trump and his movement is. Tell them how worried you are.Decisions are made by those who show up, and your time to show up is right
"Millennial women — we need to hear your voices."Really? I believe the Trump presidency poses the greatest threat to our
American system - ever. But there is simply no way I can discuss this with my
fellow LDS - no way. I suspect "Millennial women" would make a similar
observation regarding the things they would like to talk about - really, they
