WAR AGAINST WOMEN

Seveal women's associations and organizations like the Nat'l Organization of Women, Care2 etc. .. have spoken out against the Republican war against women. But since Hillary Clinton has been an advocate for female children and women for decades....I want to post what our Secretary of State said in an address about this particular WAR.
"Why extremists always focus on women remains a mystery to me. But they all seem to. It doesn't matter what country they're inor what religion they claim. They all want to control women. They want to control how we dress. They want to control how we act. They even want to control the decisions we make about our own health and our own bodies.
Yes, It is hard to believe that even here at home, we have to stand up for women's rights and reject efforts to marginalize any one of us, because America needs to set an example for the entire world. "
Hillary R Clinton
