Policy Analyst Inez Stepman Eviscerates Gender Wage-Gap Narrative In Capitol Hill Testimony – Opinion

Inez Stepman is a Senior Policy Analyst for the Washington D.C. think tank Independent Women’s Voice. Stepman testified on Thursday about the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) and was summoned to Capitol Hill. The ERA has been touted by Democrats as the answer to the “mystifying” wage gap between men and women.

Every American already has their human rights enshrined in the Constitution, but leave it to the Democrats to determine to fiddle with the world’s greatest man-made document in order to make some humans more equal than others. The ERA would be a devastating piece of legislation and remove all protections for women. This would also make it difficult to maintain a struggling business environment in the country.

Stepman testified ahead of noted policy analyst Alyssa Milano and – as the kids say – spit straight fire when it came time to answer the question many Democrats keep pointing to as proof for why the ERA is needed:

What has COVID-19 done to women in relation to income and work opportunities? 

Stepman was given the chance to answer the Democrat-like argument of Congressman Fred Keller (R. PA). Stepman delivered a solid response. She pointed to one of the most powerful women in the nation – teacher’s union president Randi Weingarten – as one the main reasons as to why so many women have been forced out of the market as wage earners.

Keller: 55% had lost their jobs during the pandemic. So I have a question, Ms.Stepman. COVID-19: Why is COVID-19 so disproportionately affecting women who hold positions of power?

Stepman: I think that’s a question you should take up with Randi Weingarten. Who’s the head of the National Teacher’s Association. Look, we’ve heard a lot about European nations in this hearing. It is common to compare America with them. Schools in Europe reopened their doors in a matter weeks. American schools in many states remained closed to in-person learners for far longer, to the extent that even just a couple of months ago, many families were dealing with the reality of school closures and having to – what Mary Katherine Ham so delightfully puts – “Zoom butler” their children at school. It is likely that this is why so many women have adisproportionately high school graduation rate. [left]The pandemic affected the workforce. Because as much as many try to fight against it, women still choose to take more of the childcare responsibilities and family responsibilities in the home and so disproportionately they decided to leave the workforce when their children couldn’t attend school. Randi Weingarten should be your advocate.

The clip was posted by Corey DeAngelis, an education activist. You should watch the entire thing.

Stepman’s response is more than just a mic drop moment. We need to keep repeating this moment of clarity over and again. To fix the problems the Democrats created, they are creating more problems. This will make it more difficult to pass legislation to address the issues that result from their original solutions.

This is pure insanity, and it should be exposed at all costs.
