Blogversation 2012: Do you feel there’s a political “war on women” being waged?

Throughout this year, several bloggers will engage in a conversation here and on their blogs — asking questions of each other and responding. Others are absolutely welcome to join the conversation, as well. Learn more about the ladies of Blogversation 2012.

Maria Stuart asks this week's Blogversation question, about whether there's a war on women.

We’re starting a second rotation of Blogversation questions this week — each of the bloggers participating in this virtual salon takes a turn posing a question to the other participants, and we’re back at the top of the batting order.

About a month ago, Eleanor Traubman asked What would make the world better for women?

Today’s question takes that idea a bit farther, courtesy of Maria Stuart,, @mariastuart on Twitter:

Question, ripped straight from the headlines:

Do you feel there’s a political “war on women” being waged, and, as a woman, what role should government play in your life?

  1. As the economy and the general way that our society is organized gets tighter and more unworkable for a greater number of people, the political climate and policies affecting women, working class people, and people targeted by racism is increasingly oppressive. The silver lining of this phenomenon is that there is less confusion that the oppression of these groups exists and needs to be ended.

  2. I long for an election cycle in which politicians focus on equal pay, access to quality health care, education, maternity leave and daycare support instead of contraception. This pitting mothers who work outside the home with those who don’t smacks mightily of misdirection. Until we, as women, quit paying attention to the man behind the curtain, we’ll continue to make 77 cents for every dollar he earns.
