The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 02/07/12

Air date: 
Tue, 02/07/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe look back on a good couple of weeks for women. Also -- pledge drive!

 It's been a good couple of weeks for women. First, there was the ruling that nonprofits must cover contraception in their employees' health plans, even if doing so runs counter to church doctrine. Then there was the stunning betrayal -- and equally stunning reversal -- by the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Both were victories for the notion of women as full human beings, and, crucially, both were won in the court of public opinion.

Also, it's fund-raising time. Open yer wallets in the name of our fair sisters, y'all.
