    Women's Groups Oppose Affirmative Action Initiative

    Women's Groups Oppose Affirmative Action Initiative

    Women's groups on Wednesday came out in opposition to a Nebraska initiative that would change the state's affirmative action laws.

    The Nebraska Civil Rights Initiative petition would end race- and gender-based affirmative action.

    The YWCA, Girls Inc., the College of St. Mary and the Women's Fund said Wednesday that the initiative and those circulating the petitions are misleading voters. They also said that the petition is being driven by outside influences.

    "It came from people in California and New York who somehow thought they knew what was best for the state of Nebraska," said opponent Bonnie Coffey. "They brought their out-of-state initiative, hired out-of-state petitioners and funded it with out-of-state money."

    Some groups said that if the initiative were passed, it could jeopardize funding for a number of programs for women and girls.

    How are those women groups funded? Let me guess by the government with out of state resources.

    Some groups said that if the initiative were passed, it could jeopardize funding for a number of programs for women and girls.
    I don't know the details, but "affirmative action" is a female privilege. Of course they come out and want to keep their priviliges even though it goes against true equality.
