Senator Feinstein's 'Year of the Woman' Isn't the Praise She's Selling It As

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) made a rare appearance at the Women’s Caucus at the California Democratic Party Executive Board meeting on Saturday, the Los Angeles Times reported. A large part of the meeting focused on policy changes that would prevent sexual harassment and help those who have fallen victim.

During her eight-minute speech, Feinstein predicted a rather interesting 2018 election outcome:

I predict based on what I see out there that we are going to have another Year of the Woman. What it means is that we have an opportunity to really turn this next year into a year of change affecting women.

Feinstein referenced the 1992 elections where she was elected, along with a large number of other women. 

There is NO Need for a 'Year of the Woman'

Democrats love to use everything to their advantage. That's one of the major differences between liberals and conservatives. Instead of throwing a pity party conservatives pick themselves up by their bootstraps and make the best out of a bad situation.

Feinstein thinks next year is going to bring an uprising of women. She thinks that women will suddenly wake up and realize that they've been victim to men for far too long.

Newsflash, Senator. You're wrong.

Women don't need to wait for sexual harassment scandals and allegations to be strong and courageous. We are strong every. single. day. While you look at us and think that we're inferior to our male counterparts, I look at my differences as a strength.

My husband is strong and he can do things I can't, like chop wood and lift heavy items. I can do things he can't, like cook dinner and make craft projects.

I'm so tired of my millennial counterparts thinking that everyone needs to be equal. We will never be equal because men and women have different strengths and weaknesses. Instead of looking at each of those differences as negatives, we need to celebrate them!

The women we elect to higher office should share the values of the people they represent, just like the men are expected to do. 

If we have a "Year of the Woman" next year, I hope to God it's because the women who are running have great ideas and moral integrity, not because of their gender.
