To the editor:
This is National Women’s Week.
It is also a week of anticipating the Republican National Convention. It got me thinking of what Sen. Scott Brown hasn’t done for women … and what Elizabeth Warren has done.
Women struggle still with “the glass ceiling.” They may attain some leadership positions in the corporate world, but they still receive 81 cents for every dollar a man earns in a comparable position.
Scott Brown, like his Republican comrades, voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act. Elizabeth Warren says yes to righting the inequality.
In health care Scott Brown was a sponsor, with his Republican comrades, of the Blunt Amendment, denying women a full range of medical services. These include mammograms, as well as birth control pills. Elizabeth Warren supports the Affordable Care Act, which supports the full spectrum of women’s health issues.
Scott Brown doesn’t mention his wife or two young adult daughters. He doesn’t discuss issues; he just exudes a nice guy image
But when the votes are cast, women watch out — and vote Warren.
