Follow Up: Chavez’s Record on Women is Appalling

Opponents of Linda Chavez’s nomination for Labor Secretary have amassed excerpts from her collection of conservative columns and statements that reveal her blatant anti-woman rights stance. Chavez does not believe women face “glass ceilings” in the workplace that keep women from moving to upper-level, higher paying positions. Instead she attributes unequal pay and lower-level positions to women making different decisions than men.

Chavez has also spoken out about the rise in sexual harassment lawsuits, saying the increase makes the US a “nation of crybabies,” and “with men so often the target of such witch hunts, it’s no surprise that a few strike back.”
