Michigan GOP: Don’t Say We Don’t Understand Women—We Read Fashion Rags!


Michigan Republicans have been accused of fighting a “war on women” ever since they passed a law requiring women to buy extra abortion insurance if they think they might get raped. Go figure.

On Thursday, three state House Republicans offered this rebuttal, in a tweet posted by Jake Neher of Michigan Public Radio Network:

That’s Rep. Peter Pettalia, Rep. Roger Victory, and Rep. Ben Glardon reading Glamour and Harper’s Bazaar—indisputable proof that they’re in touch with the concerns of today’s modern woman. Eat your hearts out, ladies.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
