In 2013, more than 1,600 women in the United States were murdered by men. Of those women, 94% knew their murderer. The most common murder weapon was a gun—and women are most at risk when they leave their abusers (and begin to regain their power). (Alternet, August 12, 2016.)But despite such things PCG's 1% seems content in trying to convince their male readers that independent and empowered women are some kind of threat to their manhood as may be seen in the cover for the March 2013 issue of their recruitment magazine. It accompanies an article by Joel Hilliker.
This cover is designed to make male readers feel "victimized" by empowered women. The independent women is portrayed as a threat to the man. This is a terrible message to men.
Rather empowered women are vitally necessary and women deserve to be treated and respected as equals. Empowerment for women is something that needs to be embraced and celebrated. It is wrong for the empowerment of women to be portrayed as some kind of emasculating threat to men.
Women deserve to be treated and respected as equals. It is honorable for men to give women the respect they deserve as equals instead of leaving them in some kind of subordinate position.
