Women: Is there any doubt we all work? Whether we are at home raising children or in the workforce (or both), we all work...
Which is why I was incensed and Hilary Rosen's recent comments about Ann Romney (see here). I posted this to facebook today:
"No matter which side you're on politically, is there any woman out there who doesn't find Hilary Rosen's comments offensive? As a mom who has both stayed at home with my children and worked outside the home, I have to hope as women we're past bashing each other for our choices in raising our families. Sometimes women are their own worst enemies. Hopefully both parties can move on to discussing politics."
Both sides have distanced themselves from Ms. Rosen with rebuttals. (Smart move for both sides, although I'd venture to guess that Ms. Rosen's comments helped Mitt a little.) Meanwhile, it is my wish that in this imperfect world, women would support each other in what has to be one of the most difficult challenges of life--that of being a mother. Whether it's in media or every day life, women judging women borders on cannibalism.
That's all I have to say today.
