Harrison Butker tells women to focus on being “homemakers” instead of getting degrees

The NFL player spoke on various topics concerning women, men and politics during his graduation speech, which took place on May 11, 2024, at Benedictine College. He addressed the female graduates in the room directly, saying:

“For the ladies present today, congratulations on an amazing accomplishment, you should be proud of all that you have achieved to this point in your young lives.”

The 28th-year-old began by saying:

“I want to speak directly to you briefly because I think it is you, the women, who have had the most diabolical lies told to you. How many of you are sitting here now, about to cross this stage and are thinking of all the promotions and titles you are going to get in your career.”

Harrison continued:

“Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world, but I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world.”

While speaking about his wife Isabelle, the Chiefs kicker said her life “truly started when she started living her vocation as a wife and as a mother.” He declared himself “beyond blessed” that Isabelle “would embrace one of the most significant titles of all, “homemaker.”

“Isabelle’s dream of having a career might not have come true, but if you ask her today if she has any regrets on her decision, she would laugh out loud without hesitation, and say, ‘Hey, no, he added.
