Paul said that the women in his family are incredibly successful, and don't complain about their place in society.

"The women in my family are incredibly successful," he said. "I don't hear them saying, 'Oh woe is me, this terrible misogynist world.'"

The senator joked that he worries more about young men than about young women.

"I don't see so much that women are downtrodden. I see women rising up and doing great things," Paul said. "In fact I worry about our young men sometimes."

When asked if comments like Huckabee's were appropriate, Paul said he tries to avoid talking about women's bodies.

"I try never to have discussions of anatomy unless I'm at a medical conference," he said.
