  1. All women on the board??? If an all male board was appointed (doesn't matter the board, just pick one), the left wingers would be screaming.

    1. Umm, men are vastly overrepresented in KY governance, look at the General assembly: both chambers are over 80% male even though there are more women than men in KY.
      (source: www.lrc.ky.gov/whoswho/GA Demographics.pdf)

      Also, all male boards/commissions are not rare... Pick some random ones from the 10 page list of KY boards and commissions:
      http://governor.ky.gov/SiteCollectionDocuments/CurrentBoardListing.pdf
      The 1st page has (at least) one all-male commission, "Airport Zoning Commission"

      But I'm not gonna be distracted by your Alt-Facts. Complaining about too many women in governance is a common way to try to get an even stronger imbalance of men in leadership positions. It's clear here that you, ridiculously, want some men to be authorities on how to empower women...

  2. It's astounding that the Kentucky Commission on Women is dedicated to "empowering them to overcome barriers to equity," rather than, say, breaking down those barriers. I guess it's great that the state recognizes structural and systemic barriers to gender equity & equality, but the commission mission statement leaves the barriers in place. Feminists, activists, and scholars have documented official laws, policies, and practices that systematically advantage men and it would be great to change those. Unfortunately, the commission's purpose is inadequate, on its face, to substantially changing gender inequality's benefits to men.
