NOW Demands Access to Program Geared to Fathers

         During the Bush administration, National Organization for Women opposed the " Responsible Fatherhood Initiative" which the government would grant to help fathers to gain job skills and still be part of children's lives. NOW went out of their way and getting their way in destroying programs to help fathers and being hostile to the nuclear family. Here's a refresher for you and this is just the tip of the iceberg. From The Washington Post:

"It's called the Promoting Responsible Fatherhood Initiative, and the Bush administration doles out up to $50 million annually to fund its programs to build job skills and help fathers connect better with their children. But the National Organization for Women says the effort is illegal because it's only about men.

NOW and Legal Momentum, another advocacy group, filed complaints yesterday with the Department of Health and Human Services alleging sex discrimination in the initiative that is funding about 100 programs this year.
Administration officials and grant recipients say the challenge is misguided. The programs may target men, they say, but helping men become better fathers will benefit women and children, too. Moreover, HHS officials say they have told grant recipients they must open their fatherhood programs to women.

'If a woman says she wants to apply and it's not happening, we want to know about it,' said Tara Wall, at the Administration for Children and Families, the HHS agency that oversees the grants. 'Yes, fathers are the target group, but at the same time allowing equal access is required.'
Problem solved? Not exactly, said NOW President Kim Gandy: "The proposals they received and funded clearly indicate that they only intend to serve fathers."

This is the seething hatred and jealousy fathers face from the feminist movement and our government just let them get away with it. There are 47 programs for women but NOW wants to accuse ONE program for men of discrimination for not including women? When did they ever have a single female oriented program to include men or boys?
