The president of Los Angeles NOW — but not the actual LA chapter of NOW — endorses Sarah Palin:
Excuse me, this is a woman who will fight for women’s rights? Which rights would those be? She’s on a ticket that is anti-choice, anti-gay, anti-pay-equality and generally bad for women. Having women in positions in power is crucial to empowering women more broadly; but when those women are anti-feminist, it’s not a feminist move to elect them.
To be clear, NOW’s LA chapter is endorsing Obama/Biden, not Palin. The Palin endorsement is an individual, personal one. But of course right-wing sites are already celebrating this “new feminism” — because apparently, “same-old” is the new “new.”
