The thing is this: Gender inequality exists, just like racism and sexism exist. If Women's issues are not part of the republican agenda (ideologically speaking of course ), then you've marginalized women.
Except that conservatives don't think in terms of "women's issues". We think in terms of "equality under the law". Period.
Exactly. And the corollary? Hobby Lobby. Remember that decision? Women's rights are limited - and not even for legal purposes, but for ideological reasons. Because, uh, religion for cripes sake.
Limiting access to women's medical choices is unequal treatment under the law.
Allowing states to stonewall access to abortions and their clinics creates inequality under the law.
Every time you marginalize a rape you're marginalizing women's legal protections.
These are women's issues that create inequality under the law. You can argue all you want, you can trivialize, and marginalize and pander put the reality is that women bear the babies. Women HAVE to manage offspring production. That's reality. YOUR party time and again continues to control and/or limit how we do this.
