The Obama administration has been talking the talk …but not walking the walk. During last year’s campaign season, we heard plenty about how the Republican party has perpetrated a savage ‘War on Women’, but few in the mainstream media had the gumption to question Barack Obama’s own practices on such matters.
The Washington Free Beacon has recently reported on a Flickr photo from the Oval Office with the Presidents advisors standing in the room. It looks like a great photo-op, but there seems to be something missing: women.
The White House’s Flickr account recently released a photo of President Barack Obama and his top advisers. The complete absence of women in the image is another reminder that females are underrepresented in Obama’s staff.
This of course, is merely circumstantial evidence of the Obama administration’s disregard for treating women staffers as well as the men. But then the report continues:
The Obama White House in 2011 paid female staffers 18 percent less than their male colleagues…
Perhaps Obama should call Mitt Romney and borrow some of his binders full of women, because his Oval Office sure doesn’t have many. As the Free Beacon put it, “It is unclear when Obama and the Democrats will call off the war on women.”
