The "progressive" claim is either a self-deception, or an intentional lie for sake of advertising the cause. There is nothing progressive, nothing!, in Left's constant belittling of and insulting the women who do not vote for Dems or women, and starting destruction campaigns against Blacks/Hispanic/Gays who vote Republican.Given that the left is more progressive than the right, it follows that its members would be concerned with women's rights and human rights. But it would be incorrect to say generally that the right is not at all concerned with women's rights/human rights. The right exists on a continuum, just as the left does.
https://www.libertarianism.org/columns/how-is-libertarian-feminism-different-other-feminismsHave you never heard of libertarian feminism?
Yes i have. every movement/party has variations within itself.
There is a difference between "feminist" and simply a liberated woman, who feels free to make choices in career, politics, social matters without "fitting into a pattern" of a particular thought or movement or party. A liberated person does not tote a party line, but selects what suites one from ALL that is available.

plenty, here are two famous ones.
M. Obama scolding women who voted for Trump:
H. Clinton: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbBgmfEAEUM
H. Clinton "almost saying sorry" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qO-dKhU3mSE
H. Clinton did not DARE to mention sexism or "women being influenced by husbands" when Obama (male) was selected over her... Come to think of it.. ... some "progressives" called HC's campaign "racist and entitled white woman" who expects to rise to the top above some "black dude"....Hilary put a lot of cracks in the highest and hardest of glass ceilings. Don't you think that matters?
What's fair and progressive, is to have equal laws for ALL, and judge people on merit, and not "give advantage" or "bully people" into hiring women. If a man can work 10-hr day, and a woman can only work 8-hr day - the JOB GOES TO THE MAN. If a woman has 2 diplomas and 10 years experience and a man has 1 diploma and 5 years experience - the JOB GOES TO THE WOMAN. That's progressive and fair (and not some stupid quotas, and social engineering).Given that women are slightly more than half the population, shouldn't they be fairly represented in the political institutions that govern their lives?
