Christianity is a religion that not only favors men but also belittles women. A majority of republicans are conservatives that follow the Christian Bible. As younger generations become more liberal and fight for equality, I believe that the older generations will die off. I don't understand how any woman could vote for a republican.
Not all Republicans are sexist, but there has been a real problem with sexism within the Republic Party. Have you heard the recent comments from Republicans about women being able to shut down their reproductive systems if they're getting raped? Yeah, a lot of these people are out of touch with reality.
With the recent comments, which became very public, of members of the Republican party in regards to rape--Akin comes to mind--it is hard to view the GOP as being appealing to women. Their constant support of laws that limit or prohibit abortion and their endorsement of laws that would limit a woman's access to birth control need to be reviewd, and those policies changed or they are going to continue having problems earning women's votes.
All one has to do to answer the question of women and any problems with Republicans is to look at the election results for the 2008 and 2012 Presidential Race. The truth is, women have been voting for Democrats by a huge margin, and are not turning out to vote for Republicans.
