The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 04/05/11

Air date: 
Tue, 04/05/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
At least they're consistent. Abe and Joe look at the GOP's latest assault on women.

 They're as predictable as the tides. Back in control of the U.S. House and statehouses across the land, the Republicans have returned to their age-old crusade -- smacking down uppity women everywhere. Abe and Joe look at the landslide of new laws and pending legislation  that is chipping away at women's equality and reproductive rights.

In the end, though, it all down to the same old patriarchal song -- fear of sexuality and fear of women.
