There are not many, even in liberal circles, which can negate that the reason the republicans failed in the last election was due to a campaign waged labeled “the war on women”. The Democratic party played heavily on the notion that Republicans were chipping away at freedoms and causes that are crucial to women. Alarmists talked about the day when abortion was illegal, and birth control was no longer available. The Democrats painted a picture of the Republican Party consisting of men who wanted to push women back to the time before Susan B Anthony secured our rights to vote. They launched a campaign that would have us believe that being barefoot and pregnant was our future and that the Republican Party aimed to abolish our human rights.
