SC Governor: “There is no war on women; women are doing well”

Gov. Nikki Haley’s definition of “doing well”:

• Unemployment for women has been practically stagnant for three years

• 88 percent of jobs created since the end of the recession went to men

• In Haley’s state of South Carolina, women are paid just 76 cents for every dollar a man makes

• Women also face higher poverty rates in South Carolina with 19 percent below the poverty line compared to 15 percent of men

“If you don’t feel this is an attack [on women], you need to go home and talk to your wife and your daughters,” said Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).

A new Washington Post/ABC News poll out this morning shows him trailing Obama by 19 points among women.
