Letter: Women’s issues

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

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.
