I would like to eliminate the rhetoric that the Republican party is “anti-woman.”

     There is just no evidence that the Republican party holds such a position.  I have seen no proposals to require women to wear burkas (sp?)  I haven’t seen a woman-only draft proposal.  There has been no legislation that, in the event of a divorce, the man gets everything (the house, the care, the kids) and the woman pay her ex alimony.  There has been no legislation denying women access to colleges and universities.

     Women enjoy a state of privilege in this country.  Really, the rhetoric is saying that the people who use it want women to enjoy even greater privilege than the Republican party supports.
