You gotta love this.

Wendy Wright of our favorite anti-feminist group, Concerned Women of America (CWA), recently stated that there is a link between the higher rate in incarcerated women and the feminist agenda; in other words, we caused the shit.
While we’ve known that the number of women in prison has been increasing for quite some time, Wright claims that we’re leading American women away from the family and into lives o’ crime. After all, what else would we do with ourselves without men and babies?
She says that feminist ideology’s “radical individualism” tells women they shouldn’t be dependent on others, leading them to illegal activities “where they’re forced to fend for themselves.” I thought that was pretty funny considering the fact we’ve posted before on how Marc Mauer from The Sentencing Project blames this increase of incarceration on dependence itself:
“it coincides exactly with the inception of the war on drugs…It represents a sort of vicious cycle of women engaged in drug abuse and often connected with financial or psychological dependence with a boyfriend.”
