With Donald Trump literally taking center stage in Thursday night’s Fox News Republican Presidential Primary Debate, inquiring minds want to know where The Donald stands on women’s issues (both he and his lawyer have tantalized observers with hints).

But among Republicans and GOP-leaning independents, national horse race polls don’t show much of a gender gap in Trump’s support.” Lucky for us, The Washington Post dove deep into three of Trump’s memoirs to examine his opinions on women. Trump’s views range from, “My own mother was a housewife all her life.
