From Abortion to Equal Pay

July 16, 2008 | NeW Staff

The Politico posted an insightful article analyzing Obama’s efforts to attract Hillary’s women to his campaign.  The article, Obama Strategy: Equal Pay, Not Abortionhighlights, as the title suggests, Obama’s strategy of focusing on equal pay rather than abortion to attract Hillary’s women.  Instead of turning to Jane Roe, he turns to Lilly Ledbetter, a woman who lost a lawsuit she filed for pay discrimination against Goodyear.  This seems to be pandering at its worst.

The article is a must read for those of you interested in equality for women.  I am writing an article on the equal pay issue now and Obama’s failed attempts thus far to capture the adoration of former Hillary supporters (I hope that will be a must read too!).
