Stephen Miller, who gained notoriety earlier this year when he remarked that President Donald Trump’s power “would not be questioned” as a veiled threat against the courts on the Muslim Ban, has taken on a new set of responsibilities in the White House. Miller, a lifelong anti-feminist, will now be working alongside Ivanka Trump on women’s issues.
Both Miller and Trump will undoubtedly pose serious threats to women’s rights in their new roles. Trump, who never relented from supporting her father’s candidacy even when he was caught on tape talking about assaulting women, claims to be an advocate for working women but didn’t instate a maternity leave policy at her own company until she was challenged for not having one. Miller has been a force in right-wing extremism since high school.
There is much to say on Miller’s appointment—but in a way, these 10 quotes say it all. Women are now more in danger than ever due to Donald Trump’s regressive policies, and the man selected to help him dismantle the feminist victories of the last century is likely chomping at the bit to do so.
