Steve Pearce on women: “The wife is to voluntarily submit, just as the husband is to lovingly lead and sacrifice”

Just when you think he can’t say anything worse, Congressman Steve Pearce discusses in a recently released book that a wife is to “voluntarily submit” to her husband. Really?

In Steve Pearce’s world women are inferior, which means ‘do as you are told’ or do nothing at all. Unless a man tells you what to do or think. Then it’s okay.

This perverted, twisted logic has become a rule of law for Steve Pearce and his right wing, tea party friends. Except, it’s not enough for just their friends—they want to shove these outdated and blatantly un-American ideas down everyone’s throats, regardless of whether you agree or not.

That’s wrong; it disrespects and invalidates women and the long, hard march to full equality that men and women have fought for the past 40 years.

Will you donate $25, $50 or $100 to defeat Cong. Steve Pearce and right wing fanatics?
“The wife is to voluntarily submit, just as the husband is to lovingly lead and sacrifice,” he writes.

Republicans every few months put out bogus press releases and announcements about how their members have been coached to be more aware and sensitive to women’s issues. This is the result.

It is way past time to send Steve Pearce into retirement, once and for all.

DPNM is building a future that supports and validates all women, men and children.

Join our efforts going forward in the 21st century instead of letting Steve Pearce drag us back to the 19th century.

We are trying to raise $5,000 in the next ten days to reach voters and defeat Steve Pearce. Please help us by contributing whatever you can spare today.

Change is coming—right now.
