Wednesday presented great cause to celebrate as the Supreme Court struck down DOMA and rejected California’s anti-gay marriage legislation, Proposition 8. However, just the day prior, the same Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act.
The nearly fifty-year old Act was originally passed to protect the voting rights of minorities. It took just two hours before the first state took advantage of its absence.
In the 2012 election, President Obama won the female vote by 11 points over his GOP challenger, Mitt Romney. That is a major deal, especially when you consider women comprised 53% of the voting population.
How does the Republican Party plan to gain those votes back? Legislation against the female body, of course!
