What we've all heard about extremists in countries like Iran -- -- and trying to curb women's rights denying them all together.
The secretary of state Hillary Clinton.
Thinks the threat there's a lot closer to home apparently speaking at the third annual women in the world summit in New York over the weekend.
She used -- what might be called some hyperbole to sound the alarm about people who were -- -- control she says women.
Why it extremists.
Always focus on women remains a mystery to me.
But they all seem to.
It doesn't matter what country therein are -- what religion they claim they all want to control women want to control how we dress they want to control how we -- They even want to control the decisions we make them.
It is hard to believe but even here -- com.
We have to stand up.
Floor women's rights and reject efforts to marginalize anyone of us.
Secretary Clinton betraying the administration's attack on religious freedom in the mind of many is an attack on women's rights and her mind at least how -- voters see it.
Well president Obama's reelection campaign also making a move this week to build support among women voters the Democratic National Committee sending out mailings to a million women and several battleground states.
Trying to highlight the benefits of obamacare here to talk about that.
The role of women and social issues in this election joining us.
Kimberly Guilfoyle former prosecutor cohost of the five on Fox News Naomi Wolfe author of the book the end of America letter of warning to a young patriot.
And it is great to have you both here I think there your for the first reaction is the administration's campaign focusing on women.
And by the way the campaign staff and the administration in the person of Hillary Clinton doing so.
Profit there for the president in November.
Yeah it's a good move but it's infuriating to me what fleas -- -- it's kind of a trifecta.
This victory -- she did during Clinton administration.
Wind she -- all over the world and went to Beijing and sort of represented.
The face and voice have all -- -- -- feelings about women's rights all over the world and that was great at that time but now she is part of an administration.
He's cracking down on human rights here homes part of an administration that.
-- very recently signed into law the national defense authorization act which.
For tunnels right at home but but just to stay with whites Smart politics unfortunately -- so hypocritical.
-- -- Obama on the idea that it can be hypocritical ahead and and -- dollar's descent and still be a -- sadly the case right unfortunately.
Obama has a really great opening move now to solidify -- we solidified the Democrats Rand as better for women.
-- because unfortunately Republicans have -- blundered in TU.
Looking like another -- faction is they go for the chance vaginal sonogram.
Laws across -- you know cost the country and state after state.
And you know Rush Limbaugh calling this you know law student -- and so on it's it's.
Really little out Ed Schultz or Bill Maher I mean I love the way that the sort of troops off the balance.
Of those supporting the president that Rush Limbaugh says this or that.
Rather than -- -- policy maker of some sort -- your reaction here.
I -- what I -- bothers me.
Regardless of who say whether -- Republican what the are Democrat I think he should be supported and respectful towards women I don't like it coming out of amounts of -- side there.
I certainly don't appreciate what I -- was a double standard with respect to this administration.
-- saying it's a problem Rush Limbaugh says it.
But it's not a problem in the comedians are Bill -- and there's some people put -- saying look it's after 11 o'clock even have a the head of -- -- while he needs to win the election we wanna take the money.
Come on stick up for winning the and guess what Hillary is part of the administration is trying to profit from this and return brought Obama to the White House by forcing these issues will.
-- -- Let's listen to somebody in that who doesn't some often heard and in the public arena and that's the -- for governor Romney and Romney.
And her views on women's issues here and if we met.
And you know what women care about and this is what I love.
Women care about jobs.
Women care about the economy they care about their children and they care about the debt and their angry and they -- furious about that the entitlement debt that we're leaving our children.
-- -- She's absolutely right and it was a good line I mean something I've been seeing three years is that there are conservative feminist just like there are.
Liberal feminists and just because.
Feminism has often been identified liberals doesn't mean that.
Women who are small business owners woman who in the military when her socially conservative can't care about feminists and it's gonna come with a different set of policies -- so.
For these women to say you know we want less regulation they could read that as real feminism and it should be a big tent so.
You know yes he's right.
I'm -- she's got the right approach -- like that that was a really strong statement and bring it back to the fact that.
You know women are the -- -- the house on the head -- my household on the single mom on the one pain of those nobody taking care of anything for me I make the decisions about myself about my family.
About to educate my son where he should go -- -- activities he should be involved and I wanna know that I can meet my mortgage at the end of the month I -- know that this economy is moving.
In the right direction I'm gonna be able to pay my bills and support the people I need to those are issues that are Cingular to men and and -- highlighting that I think that's important especially for the Republicans conservatives to get at that's something that -- that.
I would say I -- at the risk of this totally Green with each other completely I would say that.
That's a very legitimate conservative take on feminists and I want eat independent I don't want government handouts.
I mean I've heard women who are very pro Second Amendment -- feminist argument that I wanna protect myself I want it.
You know people to protect my family.
What I would ask you though is as a one -- This you know fifteen states passing these restrictive laws about abortion where.
You're compelled to undergo a transnational.
Expand you know just as a -- want is -- put it.
I mean that's not respectful to women whatever you believe on pro -- -- polite that's just about.
Into the heating women punishing them and doing it again by targeting their sexuality -- Yeah a lot of I wouldn't necessarily agree with and it's in entirety when I do think is that women should have -- the ability to make decisions about their own.
House that their personal wealth there I wanna be able to afford that and -- for myself and not expect the government to give me hands out because I don't think that's the right direction and a well.
It's illuminating to hear you both for respond premier different perspectives on the left and the right and its interest thing that to find that so much of conservatism.
Independent self reliance respect of these -- I think captivated -- outlook -- not able to translate that to the voters because right now -- advantage Obama and her carpet when I have and they know it.
And we will see how that that illumination.
The -- -- across the -- are there thanks so much.
