Palin Stance On Family Issues Divides Women
Professor Deborah L. Rhode is quoted in a San Francisco Chronicle story about vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin:
Although the reasons for the passionate responses to Palin's candidacy among American women can be endlessly parsed, the relevant question, according to Stanford law professor Deborah Rhode, is: What positions will Palin take on policies that will enable Americans to better balance work and family?
"History teaches that putting a woman in power does not necessarily empower women," Rhode said. "What matters most in choosing leaders is not their gender but their agenda."
