L.A. Times article from Gloria Steinem on Sarah Palin

What a turn of events! Palin for vice president? Really, McCain? Who do you think you are fooling? Are we supposed to believe that you, or the Republican party for that matter, has had a change of heart and now believes in women's equality? What a thinly veiled stunt!

And if I hear one more person tell me that now Hillary voters have someone to throw their support behind, I'm gonna...I don't even know what! What a joke! Do people actually believe that Pro-Choice, Pro-Woman, Feminist fighters for equality are actually going to be duped into believing that Palin is a legitimate alternative? Excuse me, but one woman does not equal another--Hillary Clinton and Sara Palin could not be further apart on issues. I guess women really are interchangeable in the minds of Republican strategists!

Here is a link to a great article in the L.A. Times by Gloria Steinem-- "Palin--wrong woman, wrong message"
