Cosmopolitan Magazine plans to evaluate candidates on a few "women's issues" this fall, writes Amy Otto, with criteria developed from left-wing talking points.
"Drawing upon Cosmo's love of lists, Otto presents her own "5 Mind-Blowing Problems With this Female Political Litmus Test" to expose how Cosmo's policy misinformation and advice to readers will hurt women rather than help them. "This is more elite, left-wing, New York City 1 percenters telling women what they should think. ... They are just adding another avenue to make choices FOR women: how to dress, how to please your man, how to vote for 'their candidate'... "

"There are many reasons why 80 percent of Americans decline to identify themselves as 'feminists'," writes Mollie Hemingway. "One of them is how often the movement denigrates the choices of women." As an example, Hemingway points to liberal-progressive Institute for Women's Policy Research's recent "map purporting to show, as the Washington Post put it, 'where working women are most equal'."
Examining each of the four factors used to arrive at states' ranking, Hemingway argues, "If you think 'equal rights' means 'equal outcomes', this is a great map. If your understanding of 'equal rights' is about 'liberty' or the freedom to make your own decisions, it's a train wreck. ... Enough of this poisonous ideology. This is at least partly why so few Americans identify as feminists."
