Year of the Woman: Private Parts and Political Parties
"Between the Republican fixation on motherhood and the Democratic nearly exclusive focus on reproductive rights and health, women voters are defined primarily by their uterus."
Read on to hear what GQR's Anna Greenberg has to say about women in 2012.
"The "gender gap" -- the decades-long gulf between the two major parties' ability to secure the support of women voters -- has become such a calcified part of how we talk about elections and political strategy that it has left both the Democratic and Republican parties, to different degrees and in different ways, silent about the basic status of women in our society. It is ironic that our political elites can talk so much about the importance of "the women's vote" and yet say so little about the issues that are so crucial in determining whether women thrive or not.
How did we get here?"
