Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ) and her fellow GOP lawmakers on the Republican Study Committee (RSC) are introducing a Women’s Bill of Rights in order to protect the accomplishments of biological females, Fox News reports.
“I am proud to introduce the Women’s Bill of Rights to affirm the importance of acknowledging women and their unique and distinguishing characteristics and contributions to our nation. As the Left continues to erase women, we must fight for women and their place in our society. Whether it’s keeping the word “mother” in written law, or ensuring women’s domestic violence shelters do not have to accept biological men, we must stand up for women,” Lesko told Fox News Digital.
RSC chairman Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) told Fox News Digital: “The modern Democrat party has put the Left’s woke agenda before the rights of women. These days, Democrats refuse to even admit women exist or recognize them as unique beings, with unique abilities.”

The bill states that the Women’s Bill of Rights is necessary to establish in order to “reaffirm legal protections afforded to women under Federal law” due to that face that males and females have unique biological differences, which increases as they age.
The lawmakers’ bill says that due to biological differences, only females are able to “get pregnant, give birth, breastfeed children.” In addition, males are larger and possess greater strength than females due to biology. The text also states that females are subjected to more specific forms of violence, including sexual violence.
Despite these biological differences, the lawmakers point out that women have succeeded in education, athletic and other accomplishments, and due to “misguided court rulings related to the definition of ‘sex,'” that has endangered “spaces and resources” dedicated to women, the bill is necessary to clarify terms in order to afford women protections.
