Is There a War on Women? - MP3
Running Time: 01:00:56
In recent months and years, gender issues have taken an increasingly important role in discussions of law, policy, and electoral politics, garnering a great deal of media attention and public discussion. What are the true implications of the Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire Corporation case and the government’s ensuing actions? Have they been used, perhaps opportunistically or disingenuously, by either side in this debate? Have gender issues in general been misused in the same way? Is there a War on Women, or is this a canard designed to excite and mislead?
