And Democrats -- -- war on women it was their political weapon during the campaign but now will Democrats confront.
The real war on women that one going on right now in the Middle East.
Republican congressional Canon mark met Sally the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat -- at least she joins -- nice to see you good to -- you -- your race is not get called either there.
You don't you know middle account still counting and that -- a separation bonds that's less than a thousand right now but every day it's kind of up and down well I give -- some of the so called war on women pound.
At first well let's admit that -- an axis are not perfect that -- -- things could always improve your virus you've traveled the world there's a story about what happened where the Syrian woman.
Can holding onto her passport -- -- she's -- and she's unveiled.
Put the picture gets posted on the web site and there's the picture on the web site.
And it was taken down by FaceBook and -- down by FaceBook because.
The explanation was it did that it didn't that the -- content violates FaceBook community rules.
In that somebody objected to it.
It is -- not as as as an example I mean their women all over the Middle East for seeing it Yemen you know Tunisia Egypt.
They're using social media to show what's really going on parents -- -- help.
Mobilize others and to get attention to -- the -- women really is over there so it.
Actually inappropriate that it would be taken down and I think it's back up now that's what I heard -- its backup and FaceBook has apologized but it's prevention that the sort of the knee jerk reaction at least to remove this picture because there are people where she was living in that death objected to an unveiled woman and so they want that on the FaceBook page yet.
Doesn't surprise me and having -- -- in the Middle East and Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan and also as a place than Africa.
And surprise me that very disturbing that face that would actually be willing to take it down it is hard to imagine when you when he broke in this country and so like.
That education that women could go to education as the story -- that the fourteen year old I have to -- -- girl shot in the head because she dared to confront the Taliban on education right.
It it's just extraordinary and the real warn women is let's -- on honoring these places they have.
You know women that are honor killed after they've been raped they can't go to school they can't leave their house they can travel.
I mean this is really what we should be fighting as far as -- we do have it well we have incredible opportunities here in the United States.
-- -- this is certainly reminder.
And many countries in the world.
That women are are are really treated as property.
Their lives are in danger.
-- young girls in honor of all ages and this is very very serious this is a warm lemon yeah it's so horrible though that almost seems unbelievable and in the stories that you hear -- about women now will that get raped and then some invention of murdered because she -- now she's not a clean woman.
-- -- think the stories are so bizarre to us that they seem like the people making him up.
Yeah but Israel and then I've met I've met women have been in the situations and those countries and it is very -- and Afghan women here in the United States who tell me.
If she couldn't get -- because she had been raped by a relative and she was just gonna kill herself and she -- in a very matter of fact way because she felt like there was no other out.
This is this is a serious threat -- these women are facing him her in their countries we traveled to which took on the record to Saudi Arabia with -- for First Lady Laura Bush who was down on breast cancer awareness trip and there's this time because women could even go to have a mammogram because -- -- drive themselves to go get the mammogram and they had their permission from their husbands to have a mammogram if there are merited it at the brother their father and if they need a surgical procedure they had to get permission again and in the fathers the Brothers didn't want -- touching them right and it can have a male doctor.
He can't -- that and they can't go to school when I can't go to school.
In these countries say you can't get a woman doctor I mean it's just in its incredible situation absolutely spent a year over inside Iranian as you know I mean -- pentagon our US -- -- being treated similar to them -- wherever they're serving.
This -- -- to break and what that you you you objected to the the way to regarded dressed well.
If there's a number of things that over time it's it was a classic case of bureaucratic policy creates so it was first.
Put on -- Muslim -- optionally -- and they said put it on the head scarf on they feared asked to and then it was sit in the backseat of the car.
Where that and a buyout by a head scarf always be escorted by hand male who -- also lying claim you as a wife instead of your commander -- -- it was.
Just totally inappropriate in the US military we were doing it ourselves.
Because what we saw the saudis want us to do because they're over they're trying to be culturally sensitive.
That's totally inappropriate and I tried it and I get change for many years filed a lawsuit against O'Donnell Rumsfeld and eventually prevailed.
Well I -- them -- over there it it really -- who -- women and I don't -- -- to think that dead just because there's so much better here that they don't have room for improvement this cabinet is so well but it's easier for -- yes that's profiling at a and other places you know out and we want to -- -- more women in congress and he would -- -- hobby of mine and it sounded like update yeah well what we watch as it happens -- thank you thanks -- coming up.
