Mike Pence to receive 'Working for Women' award from Kellyanne Conway's conservative women's group

Vice President Mike Pence will be awarded the “Working for Women” honor from the Independent Women’s Forum Wednesday despite years of working to hurt women.

According to a release sent to New York Magazine, “the award recognizes an individual who values free markets, works to create a more dynamic and innovative work world, and celebrates the valuable contributions women make to society,” Jezebel reported Sunday.

Pence was the real extremist on the ticket with a long list of victims. After fighting to take down Planned Parenthood in Congress for Indiana, he became governor and took it to a state level.

Pence led the GOP’s efforts to destroy Planned Parenthood with six pieces of legislation in just six years. He went so far as to threaten to shut down the government if Planned Parenthood continued to be funded. He not only cut needle exchange programs to provide clean needles to addicts, he then worked to shut down clinics where people could get free HIV/AIDS testing. The result was an HIV outbreak, which he ignored for two months before being forced to act.

7. Paradoxical and ironic given that

they both enthusiastically work for and support the Pussy-Grabber-in-Chief. Par for the course for this Administration.

17. Woah, what a joke. I mean seriously...that's some hardcore bullshit

A Women's group that is anti-female to this degree is pretty surreal, to say the least. Wow. They are pretty bold in their level of batshit insane bullshittery, I'll give 'em that.

What's next, Jews for Hitler? Black folks who want to bring back slavery? Groups like that would fit right in with these guys, a great coalition!!

22. have you met "concerned women for america"?

http://concernedwomen.org/ Protecting and promoting Biblical values among all citizens

co-founded by beverly lehaye, wife of tim lehaye (co-author of the idiot "left behind" series), who once went on national television and said that, if we did not teach our teenagers about sex, they wouldn't do it.

That seems familiar but to be fair, these kind of nutbaggy groups can be easily confused with one another. They are all just so loony.

26. OK, lets think about this.

Adam and Eve did not have anyone to teach them about sex and I am sure God did not explain it. They somehow figured it out on their own like any other teenagers who have never been taught. What idiots.

I agree with the blog comments below as they perfectly sum it up. Let's give the second most anti-women after trump, an award. Just unbelievable!

20. Ok, so the award

“recognizes an individual who values free markets, works to create a more dynamic and innovative work world, and celebrates the valuable contributions women make to society”

So even at face value, you don't need to actually DO anything to support women in order to receive this award. The first two criteria are completely unrelated to women, and the last can mean anything. I suppose Pence "celebrates" whenever a white, conservative, religious woman gives birth to another white, conservative, religious person.

Ok, now I understand.
