Ebola panic is sweeping the nation, and politicians, always eager to take advantage of voters’ fears, are jumping on the bandwagon hoping it will pay off at the ballot box. Most female voters aren't buying the baloney -- Gallup polls show equal pay is the number one issue.

It’s been a rough couple of years for reproductive rights – not only with the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision granting corporate control of contraception, but in Congress and statehouses around the country.  Females are the majority of voters, and a super-majority when they’re joined by men who support them. Women can control any election, and we’d better make it happen.

We’re in the countdown to the mid-term elections, so let’s talk about what’s at stake for the majority of voters – women.  Unfortunately women also make up another majority -- those working for our pathetic $7.25 an hour minimum wage.

First of five broadcasts on what's at stake for women in the upcoming elections.  Today's topic: Some candidates are promising to repeal Obamacare if elected.  What does it mean for women if the system goes away?

The Census Bureau's latest report says poverty is down.  Sounds like good news -- just not for women. The poverty rate for them is the highest rate in 20 years.  But we can't raise the minimum wage (majority female workers).  We have to pay for those unending wars in the Middle East.

The Royal and Ancient Golf Club in St. Andrews, Scotland, votes September 18 on whether to admit women. If the measure passes, the club will be firmly planted in the 20th century.  They're following in the sexist footsteps of Augusta National, where it took 10 years of activism and nearly $80 million in legal settlements to break the Green Dinosaurs. Women knew all along it wasn’t about golf.

College students are hitting the road back to school this month.  There’s no doubt it can be a wonderful experience. But for some, college will be a nightmare.  Specifically the nightmare of sexual assault for one in five female coeds.  Congress is proposing new ways to curb the mayhem, but it's not enough.  Here's a controversial but effective remedy.
