The right of the citizens of the United States: All persons born or naturalized in the United States.; who are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property. Without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

No MAN shall be required to answer a charge against him without an indictment from a Grand Jury. The accused man shall enjoy the right to speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury. The right to be informed as to the nature and cause of the accusation; and to confront the witnesses against him, no MAN shall be compelled nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of the law.

Senator Biden, author of the landmark Violence Against Women Act of 1994 and VAWA 2000 called the legislation "critical to ensuring the safety and well being of our nation's women and children."

“We broke tremendous ground in 1994 and 2000. We wrote new domestic violence laws. We outlawed marital rape. We distributed over $3.8 billion dollars to states and towns to train and support police, lawyers, judges, nurses, shelter directors and advocates to end domestic violence and sexual assault. And as a result, we’ve seen an almost 50% drop in domestic violence. But we must do more,” said Biden, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime

Twenty-five years ago feminists played a heroic role in advocating for abused women and publicizing the despicable crime of wife-beating. Today, unfortunately, their refusal to acknowledge violence by women stands in the way of eliminating domestic violence for everyone--not only women, but men and children as well.

According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, adjusting for the greater number of single mothers, a custodial mother is five times as likely to murder her own children as a custodial father is. A study of confirmed child abuse cases published in the Journal of Child Abuse and Neglect found that mothers abuse their children two and a half times as often as fathers. The Third National Incidence Study of Child Abuse and Neglect (1996) found that children are 88% more likely to be seriously injured from abuse or neglect by their mothers than by their fathers.

Defining patriarchy explains the reasons for the treatment of women through the ages and what it means to their future and success in life. Patriarchy not only explains how our society functions but how it controls women.

Patriarchy is best defined as control by men. The opposite is matriarchy which means women are in charge and the head of families. Obviously, the culture of the United States and most other countries is patriarchal. Men have the power and control the women. If you don't believe that consider the basics of how our society functions.

Women constantly must fight for their rights and sometimes they struggle just to survive without the power and domination of men threatening them. Whether an individual woman wants to conquer patriarchy will come from her desire to be independent and defined outside the context of men.

From Publishers Weekly

Integrating a personal narrative with other women's testimonies and research findings with self-help remedies, Barras sheds light on the profound impact fatherlessness can have on black women. In her 30s, Barras learned from her mother that the man she had thought was her father was not. Though stunned by the news, Barras also believed it explained much of the loneliness she endured as a child. She began to try to come to terms with the guilt she felt not only about her father's departure, but about her ruptured relationships with two surrogate fathers, each of whom left her mother while Barras was still a girl. She also recounts her heartrending efforts to mend broken trust with her mother while forging a bond with her own fatherless daughter. The study deepens in subsequent chapters, as Barras intertwines the diverse voices of other black women who grew up without their fathers. Unfortunately, her ambitious effort is marred by overly broad conclusions. She attributes a vast range of dysfunctional behaviors--from promiscuous sexual relationships and a longing for motherhood to the inability to trust and uncontrolled fits of "rage, anger, depression"--to fatherless women. And her reliance on simple solutions at times minimizes the issue's gravity. Her work is stronger when she locates the chasm between black men and women in gender war stereotypes of "good women" and "bad men" and affirmative action policies that have allowed black women upward mobility while moving black men out of the workforce. Her study should stir useful debate.

Congress shall make no law respecting the right of the people:

Senator Biden authored the landmark VAWA called the legislation critical to ensuring that police, lawyers, judges, nurses, shelter directors, and advocates will have the power to end the role of men in the family.

Men must conquer in his desire to be independent and defined outside the context of “WOMEN” no longer can men impart to women his DNA. Demand legal pornography and prostitution that allows woman the right to make money when they pleasure men. Stop the constant fight and struggle women have to live without male patriarchy and dominating power.
