How President Obama’s Re-election Helps Women

    How will Obama’s re-election effect women?

    • With Democrats on track to hold the Senate, the Affordable Care Act — also known as Obamacare — is likely to be fully implemented, making domestic violence counseling and breast feeding support available to more women, and covering well-visits and prescription contraceptives with no out-of-pocket costs for patients.

    • If a Supreme Court justice retires in the next four years, it’s likely that his or her replacement will support Roe v. Wade.

    • Paid parental leave is still a political non-starter, but ensuring that women receive equal pay for equal work will continue to be a priority.
