McCain Hates Women

Think Progress » McCain dismisses equal pay legislation, says women need more ‘training and education.’
“They need the education and training, particularly since more and more women are heads of their households, as much or more than anybody else,” McCain said. “And it’s hard for them to leave their families when they don’t have somebody to take care of them.

“It’s a vicious cycle that’s affecting women, particularly in a part of the country like this, where mining is the mainstay; traditionally, women have not gone into that line of work, to say the least,” he said.
Except that:
Women account for 56 percent of the undergraduate student population and 59 percent of the graduate school population. Across all age groups, over half of all the people in the United States with a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree are women
So, women just need to educate themselves even more than men in order to deserve equal pay?
