"Do not ever sell yourself short. You do not have to wear pants in order to go toe to toe with men; wear what makes you feel confident, intelligent, and sexy. And find a good tailor."

"Hope is what gives us courage. Hope is what gave soldiers courage to storm a beach. Hope is what gives young people the strength to march for women’s rights, and worker’s rights, and civil rights, and voting rights, and gay rights, and immigration rights. Hope, the belief that there are better days ahead." —President Obama at Laborfest in Milwaukee
"The older women I know, who are Republicans, want their daughter to have the same opportunities in the workplace as their sons. And, they don’t want their daughters to have limited access to contraception. And, the younger Republican women I know feel that the Republican party has abandoned them and doesn’t have their best interests at heart, and that it’s trying to preserve an old vision of America that no longer exists.
Many of these people feel that the Republican party has lurched to the right, no longer believes in science, and is not including them anymore. And, they are very puzzled and bewildered by that. But, what I really think is going on is that this is generational. I think that there is a realization happening in the party — we’ve even heard it from Republican diehards like Karl Rove — that they understand they are not getting the women’s vote. But, I do think that the Republican party has a lot of soul-searching to do if it’s going to be getting younger women’s votes."
