Romney made his position on women’s rights clear tonight. He is going to be sending his binders full of women to the middle east so that they can create a civil society that promotes gender equality. His position is quite confusing, given his prior comments against gender equality in his own country. If Romney’s statement was heartfelt he would have held a different position when asked about women’s issues last week. So why does he even bring it up? Each candidate has specific key words and points that they attempt to plug every debate regardless of the question posed to them. Romney did not do so well last week in regards to “women’s issues” so one of his objectives tonight is to plug women’s rights in order to paint a different picture. However, his policy decisions to promote womens rights abroad but not at home is not only contradictory, but very un presidential. Yes, women’s rights are an important global issue, but you do not point the finger at another countries atrocities when there are so many occurring within your own state and your own platform.
