Stop Erasing Women from Conversations About Their Health

Standard

Here is one example of how women are removed from national discussions concerning their health. After the stunning supreme court contraceptives ruling this morning, journalists began sounding off on its implications.

The focus of this and many other articles: “This ruling is a setback for the health care law.”

But what would it look like if we recognized women in this conversation? This ruling is a setback for women because it treats them as second class citizens whose rights to legally mandated health coverage (and what else?) have been denied.
