Shriver Report Women on the Brink, Poor Rich Women of America

Shriver Report

Click on the picture for article about the wealthiest women in America.

NCFM NOTE: The Shriver Report probably fails to mention women control most wealth in America and continue to control more and more of it every year. Perhaps the wealthy women noted in the article “Richest Women in American” could…umm, well… share the wealth, especially those who did very little other than inherit what their husband or father earned…or, those who are millionaires by divorce. Come to think of it didn’t Maria Shriver stand to gain roughly 200 million from hubby Arnold? Huff Post has it, Maria Shriver‘s Report, ‘A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back From the Brink,’ Reveals The Financial Struggles Of American Women . What? Men don’t have financial struggles? When will we see reports concerned with everyone on the brink of poverty? Why does it always have to be only about women? How do all these poor rich women in American stand being surrounded with impoverished women. I guess they take a look then say, “Home Jeeves, take me home. Oh, stop on Rodeo Drive on the way. I want to shop for a few pair of shoes…” Thank you to the reasonable women of the Independent Women’s Forum and other like minded women organizations that realize men have value and women only advocacy will be the death of our society and culture.

INDEPENDENT WOMEN’S FORUM RESPONDS TO THE SHRIVER REPORT

A Political Campaign That Perpetuates the Myth That America is Inherently Unfair to Women

(WASHINGTON D.C.) – Today at 5:30pm EST President Barack Obama will accept a copy of Maria Shriver’s annual report on the economic status on women. With a focus on financial insecurity, The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink, co-sponsored by the Center for American Progress, pushes government-centered policy prescriptions as solutions to American women’s lives and wellbeing.  Sabrina Schaeffer, co-author of Liberty is No War on Women: How Big Government and Victim-Politics Undermine America’s Progress and executive director of Independent Women’s Forum, a leading women’s organization, released the following statement in response to the report:  

“A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink is a political campaign – reports, documentaries, events – intended to perpetuate the myth that America is inherently unfair to women and girls today, to encourage even greater dependence on the state, and to give government even more control over our lives. The report is very good at cataloging the challenges that women face, but ignores many of the causes of that hardship, instead doubling down on the government-knows-best approach.

“The IWF understands there are real and legitimate difficulties that plague many women and their families. But ultimately we need long-term, sensible solutions and policies to help grow our economy, encourage job creation and a more flexible workplace, and increase opportunity for all Americans, women and men alike. Improving the lives of women requires greater educational freedom, fewer taxes and regulations on businesses, a streamlined tax system that allows families to keep more of what they earn, a dynamic marketplace that offers high quality goods at affordable prices, and stable families and communities.

“Shriver and the Center for American Progress may sell new government programs as gold from heaven, but they ignore the very real costs of this intervention which is not just measured in tax dollars and increased government debt, but in fewer jobs, a less dynamic economy, and less individual freedom.  Indeed, our over-bearing government too often is women’s worst enemy. “
