Women Feel the Pinch, Says Poll

Women feel the impact of economic insecurity and rising food, energy, education, and health care costs more deeply than men – and see government as a key to the solution -- according to yesterday's poll from the National Women's Law Center. Are we surprised that women are significantly more pessimistic than men in their attitudes about the status quo in America, both on a societal level and in terms of their own lives?

Turns out,
regardless of age, income, and education, more than half of women (55%) feel that the government should do more to solve problems and help meet people’s needs. Candidates, are you LISTENING? For more on it all, check out the NWLC's (stellar!) blog.

Not surprising as it is women who are usually the ones with dependents. It's hard to be optimistic when someone small and helpless needs you to be employed.
