Conservative commentator and bestselling author Matt Walsh has “traveled all over the world for the past year asking one simple question: What is a woman?”

“I’ve been asking everybody this, and almost nobody can answer it,” said Walsh, whose latest book, “What Is a Woman?: One Man’s Journey to Answer the Question of a Generation”, will be released in June.

What is a woman? The subject has been broached by congressional Republicans in high profile hearings involving newly-confirmed Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra. Neither answered the question.

Tennessee Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn first put the question on America’s radar by asking Jackson for a definition during the Senate Judiciary Committee’s March 22 Supreme Court confirmation hearing. Jackson did not answer, saying “I’m not a biologist.”

On April 6, Illinois Republican Rep. Mary Miller asked Becerra point-blank, “What is a woman? Can you define the word?”

“Congresswoman, I’m looking at you, and I think you’re a woman. How much more do you want me to give you?” said Becerra at the hearing of the House Education and Labor Committee.

Miller shot back: “If you’re in charge of Health and Human Services, we want a specific definition of what a woman is.”

Becerra did not provide a definition.

According to the LGBTQ movement, anyone who identifies as a woman is a woman, even if they have XY chromosomes and male genitalia. The movement demands they be treated as such by both society and the law.

The Independent Women’s Voice disagrees. The organization on March 31 released the Women’s Bill of Rights, partnering with the conservative Concerned Women of America as well as the Women’s Liberation Front and Women’s Declaration International, both self-described radical-feminist groups.

The document defines “sex” as biological sex; “female” as “an individual whose biological reproductive system is developed to produce ova;” “woman” and “girl” as “human females,” and “mother” as a “parent of the female sex.”

A “male” is defined as “an individual whose biological reproductive system is developed to fertilize the ova of a female.”

After the Senate voted to confirm Jackson, Independent Women’s Law Center Director Jennifer Braceras said: “We need to pass the Women’s Bill of Rights to clarify for all judges the meaning of the word woman.”
