1. The Democrats supported some of their women candidates and attacked others.

2. Obama was president during a time when the GOP 'small government' policies fired many government employees, most of whom were women.

3. Obama passes fake bills that help women in small ways. The GOP passes real bills that really hurt women in big ways: defunding Planned Parenthood's cancer scans etc, forbidding abortion or making it harder to get, making contraceptives harder to get, etc.

Today, I am an attorney and the busy single mother of an amazing second grader. My rape is responsible for both of these roles. You see, I enrolled at GeorgetownLawSchoolafter learning, firsthand, that pregnancy from rape creates unimaginable obstacles for women who decide to raise the children they conceive through rape. In the vast majority of states, a rapist has the same custody and visitation rights to a child born through his crime as other fathers enjoy. In 2010, a paper I wrote on this topic was published by the Georgetown Law Journal, and I continue to travel throughout the country speaking on this issue.
