Letter: Women’s issues

A so-called “Republican War on Women” — effectively coined for President Obama’s successful 2012 re-election campaign — was a topic recently tackled by a panel of women, including Karen Anderson of Orange, a contender for state representative for the 2nd Franklin District.

We encourage the readers of The Recorder to either view this discussion on AOTV or go to “Your Right To Know 4 – 2014” on YouTube. The taping, last month, by FATV (Fitchburg) presented the forum of women discussing problems facing women in the United States in the 21st century. In addition to Anderson, the panel included Mary Lotze, who is the president of the Twin City Tea Party, Christine Hallet and Kathy Godin, who also discussed concerns regarding employment, education and health that are daily facing women in Massachusetts and across the nation.

By contrast, at the 2012 Democratic Convention, Sandra Fluke had presented the National Democratic Platform, which primarily consisted of women’s health questions involving abortion and contraception. Many people viewed this as a narrow interpretation of the values and concerns facing women in the United States in the 21st century.
