Emily's List Membership Reaches 3 Million, a 6-Fold Increase Since The 2010 Tea Party Declaration To Put Women In Our Proper Place

We can’t resist politicizing this Fidan Martinovic editorial, lensed by Semih Kanmaz for Elle Turkey’s November issue. Stylist Irem Akalin chooses sophisticated retro elegance, a point of contrast against this boys club of all white guys. It really looks like today’s Republican Party establishment.

Republicans cay say that there is no war on women, but membership in Emily’s List, dedicated to electing pro-choice women to political office, has risen sixfold in three years, reports The Huffington Post. Not every Republican woman is running scared. But even the % of white married women voting Republican in Virginia dropped in half on Tuesday, compared to the Bob McDonald election four years ago.

A new milestone of 3 million members was hit recently by Emily’s List, compared to 500,000 when the Tea Party came to Washington and many state legislatures in 2010. Perhaps we all have spaghetti for brains, but Republicans have women running very, very scared. They can deny it all day long, but the facts speak for themselves.

Emily’s List played an influential role in the 2012 elections, one that elected a record — though still small — number of women to political office. The majority were Democrats.

Emily’s List is likely to be a key player in 2014 and already is involved in high-profile races that include Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes’ challenge to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky. The group has also has thrown its weight behind Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator who garnered national attention for her marathon filibuster against a highly restrictive abortion bill.

Huff Po says that the pro-woman biggest single boost in members came in May, when “conservative radio host Pete Santilli declared Hillary Clinton should be shot in the vagina over Benghazi.” Emily’s List says those comments led a surge of 170,000 new members as a result of Santilli’s comments.

Power to all the Smart Sensuality women around the world!!! ~ Anne

Lara Stone & Laetitia Casta | Daniele Duella & Iango Henzi | i-D The Wise-Up Issue #322

I-D’s staggeringly beautiful preview of mother to be Lara Stone and mother of three Laetitia Casta couldn’t arrive at a better moment. Themed ‘The Wise Up Issue’, the title is spot on with the reality that women are taking stock of our lives, our rights and the fundamentalist forces moving against us in America and around the world.

While we pad this gorgeous tribute to womanhood with precious quotes that are indeed ‘thoughtful’ about the issues facing American women, enjoy this Monday morning magnificence lensed by Daniele Duella and Iango Henzi. If hair stylist and creative director Luigi Murenu is behind the concept, I know that we’re about to enjoy a tribute to Smart Sensuality women. Charlotte Stockdale is the fashion director for this shoot, with makeup by Stephane Marais.~ Anne

Romney Lost Because He Wasn't Tough Enough on Abortion Say Social Conservatives As Women Flee GOP

Pundits say the Republican party needs a period of deep inner reflection, but anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser will hear none of it. In quotes that are utterly preposterous at this point, Dannenfelser ignored election results and the reality that of SBA List’s six candidates for senate, five went down in defeat.

Why did Romney lose with an unyielding backlash among women voters to the Republican War on Women? Dannenfelser says that Romney made a “strategic error” in not taking a stronger stand against abortion. Seriously, this woman is living on a tuffet on a teapot somewhere in Oz.

“Voters overwhelmingly disagree with the extreme positions on abortion taken by President Obama and the Democrats. Mitt Romney, the Republican Party, and their Super PAC allies never highlighted this vulnerability, despite the fact that our polling of likely swing voters revealed it to be a persuasive line of argument. What was presented as discipline by the Romney campaign by staying on one message — the economy — was a strategic error that resulted in a winning margin of pro-life votes being left on the table.”

The War on Women Backfires The Daily Beast

‘War on women’ victory, or just a skirmish won? Philadelphia Inquirer

According to exit polls conducted for the AP and TV networks, 59 percent of voters said abortion should be legal either in all or most cases, while 36 percent said it should be illegal all or most of the time.

Column: Republicans’ culture war Lost USA Today

“If Republicans are smart, they will realize that the culture war just isn’t working out for them any longer. ” Alas, there is no evidence that Republicans will be smart and lighten up on women and gays. 

“After decades of rewarding Republicans with votes for their scare-mongering over abortion and homosexuality, voters finally turned to social conservatives and said, “Enough.”’ writes USA Today. From my pov, the culture wars are God’s war in America.

To say the culture wars are over is arguing that America’s Catholic bishops are ready to give up the control of women’s bodies in America. Trust me — it isn’t so. On our side of the equation, American women are highly motivated coming out of Tuesday’s election, gearing up to extend this fight for women’s freedoms in America.

2013 may not be an election year. Yet, all hell could break lose in this battle for women’s bodies.

I consider myself to be an emerging leader in this revitalized women’s movement. All I can say is: Game On, Gentlemen! ~ Anne
