Vice President Mike Pence is a hardcore evangelical who calls himself "a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order." But he's also gained notoriety for saying some really weird stuff about women. Clearly, Mike Pence's relationship with women is strained. He has passed laws limiting women's access to reproductive healthcare, and once wrote an open letter saying that working mothers have a negative effect on their children. He apparently doesn't trust himself around them, either - Pence has publicly admitted his aversion to dining alone with any woman other than his wife.
Women and Mike Pence seem unlikely to agree on many issues. However - perhaps because America has recently leapt into the darkest timeline - Pence managed to be awarded the Working for Women award by the Independent Women's Forum, a conservative nonprofit organization, in March of 2017. This honor was bestowed despite Pence's actions and championing of stringent gender rules, which appear to run in direct opposition to furthering women's workplace opportunities.
There's no other way to say it: Mike Pence is a weirdo around women.
