I have met and heard the tragic stories of many parents. PA is a function, by and large, of a custodial ex-partner, although some alienation can start while the couple is still together.

This blog is a story of experiences and observations of dysfunctional Family Law (FLAW), an arena pitting parent against parent, with children as the prize. Due to the gender bias in Family Law, that I have observed, this Blog has evolved from a focus solely on PA to one of the broader Family/Children's Rights area and the impact of Feminist mythology on Canadian Jurisprudence and the Divorce Industry.

Obama just became a GynOcrat ~ Is he the first President to achieve this status

Check this out. The Gynocracy is now in full force. Even Obama has fallen for the propaganda of 1 in 4 women being abused and a women makes 78% of a mans earnings. It would appear he takes it at face value given he signed a bill to ensure women make as much as men. It won't change much because women don't work for as long as men, they don't travel the same distances to work, they don't work in hazardous jobs and they seem to chooose occupations they may like but don't pay as much. Take early child care education. Most of these facilities are run by women who hire women. Will the government force the pay rates up. If so will anyone be able to afford the services. There are many dimensions to the problem that Obama doesn't seem to get. Who has his Blackberry email address so we can get him out of the "bubble". In most occupations where women do the same work as men they make the same money. He can apparently speak well but he can't analyze information. Does he see 40,000,000 women needing care as that is the number you get from 1 in 4 women are abused. 160,000,000 women in the USA (approximately) x .25 gets you 40,000,000 walking wounded. Its absurd. Obama just became a gynocrat in my book. Shall we call him GynObama or ObamaGyn.MJM

NOW Cheers White House Council on Women and Girls: "We Got the Entire Cabinet!" Statement of NOW President Kim Gandy

March 11, 2009

NOW cheers the formation of the White Council on Women and Girls, which was created by executive order of President Barack Obama today. It was a pleasure for me to be at the White House to hear the president make this commitment to supporting women and girls in such strong and unequivocal terms. It was a heartening moment for those of us who have worked so hard for this day.

There can be no question that the needs of women and girls require the attention of the White House itself. As President Obama pointed out in today's speech, women still earn 78 cents for every dollar earned by men. One out of every four women will experience some form of domestic violence during her lifetime. Women make up more than half the population, yet are only 17 percent of the U.S. Congress. And while women are 49 percent of the nation's workforce, only three percent of the Fortune 500 companies are headed by women.

The make-up of the White House Council is extraordinary. It will be headed by Valerie Jarrett, assistant to the president and one of his closest friends and advisors, and will include every Cabinet secretary and the head of every Cabinet-level agency. The Executive Director of the Council will be Tina Tchen, deputy assistant to the president and a long-time advocate of women's rights.

We asked for a Cabinet-level office to work on women's issues, and we got the entire Cabinet. NOW looks forward to supporting the work of the White House Council on Women and Girls in the months ahead. There is much work to be done.
