Ms. Magazine’s new weblog takes a crack at IWF and our recent study on the feminist dependence on government.

In a “report” called “Dependency Divas,” the Independent Women’s Forum attempts to pull off a Karl Rovian-distortion of progressive language but ends up falling into the gaps of its own logic.

The central argument, expressed in an article published in The National Review Online by the author of the report, Carrie L. Lukas, seems to be that major organizations in the women’s movement, by advocating “government-provided healthcare, steeply progressive taxes, and more regulations of how businesses compensate employees,” and by fighting “Social Security reforms that give workers control over more of their retirement savings” and “education policies that empower parents,” are promoting the idea that women are “dependent” and “incapable of caring for themselves.”
