A little over a month into his presidency, President Donald Trump has a point.
Many women do not have rights to the Oval Office, he said in a speech to supporters last week.
But when it comes to a women’s role in the workforce, the president is right.
Women don’t get the same protections as men.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the federal agency that enforces anti-discrimination laws, estimates that more than 40% of jobs on the job are held by women.
Yet women still make up just 25% of the workforce in the private sector, and only 23% of U.S. senators are women.
In 2016, the Senate confirmed just two women to serve on the judiciary.
In the past, the Supreme Court has sided with women on important cases, including the Equal Pay Act, which requires companies with more than 50 full-time equivalent employees to pay women at least the same wage as men for comparable work.
In recent years, Trump has suggested that a woman’s right to vote shouldn’t matter because of her “body type.”
He also suggested that if a woman had a child, the mother should take a pay cut to give her a chance to get an education.
“Women are not the same as men, period,” Trump said during a campaign rally in October.
Trump has also said that if he were to become president, women would be barred from certain positions, like the White, the Cabinet and the Pentagon. “
And if it’s not, then you better get the hell out of there.”

But these comments have been met with criticism from Democratic lawmakers and activists, who say that Trump’s comments don’t accurately reflect the policies he wants to enact.
The White House also responded to the president’s comments, saying the administration would work to address issues facing women across the country, including access to health care, access to childcare, and paid family leave.
“The president’s statements do not reflect the views of the Administration, nor do they reflect the Administration’s approach to women and equal pay,” a spokesperson for the White and White House said in an email to The Hill.
“As President, he will always support equal pay for equal work and will continue to advocate for policies that promote women’s economic security, including paid family and medical leave.”
Trump’s remarks come as he’s attempting to enact his first major legislative achievement: a bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
Since the Affordable Healthcare Act became law in 2010, more than a million Americans have gained coverage under the law, and more than two million people gained access to employer-based insurance coverage.
Under the Affordable Health Care Act, employers must provide paid family or medical leave and paid sick days.
The law also created a federal workweek of 14 hours, which was increased to 19 hours for women, and 15 hours for men.
However, the White Houses Health and Human Services Office of Civil Rights has noted that in 2016, nearly one-third of workers were not eligible for federal paid sick leave.
The office said that in the past two years, women experienced a lower rate of paid leave than men, which it attributed to a “gender pay gap.”
In the first nine months of 2017, women earned on average $15.19 for every dollar earned by men, while men earned $15 for every $1 earned by women, the Office of Equal Opportunity said.
In 2017, more women than men received paid leave.
But women still accounted for less than one-quarter of workers who were eligible for paid family care.
“In 2016, women received $1.4 million less in paid leave benefits than men,” the Office noted.
Trump has said that his administration is working on a plan to fix the gender pay gap.
In December, the Trump administration announced a proposal to increase paid family, medical and compassionate leave for women.
The administration also said it would increase the maximum amount of paid sick and disability leave for workers to at least one day per week.
On Jan. 5, Trump signed a bill that would expand the eligibility for Medicaid, which provides health insurance for the poor, disabled and low-income.
The bill would also expand the state Medicaid programs that provide health coverage to people with low incomes.
Trump’s plan also would allow for states to offer health insurance coverage to women at a lower cost.
The AHCA would provide tax credits to people to buy health insurance on the federal exchanges, including through state Medicaid plans, and it would make insurance available to women.
However in recent months, the bill has drawn criticism for including provisions that would allow states to impose a tax on contraception coverage.
A separate bill would expand Medicaid to cover those with incomes up to 138% of poverty, which is $24,
