Promoting gender equality abroad while fighting it at home


I find it remarkable that Mitt Romney repeatedly called for the promotion of gender equality in the Middle East during Monday night’s debate while campaigning against it at home. How can we take such calls seriously when his surrogates call for barring affordable access to women’s preventive health care and label the push for equal pay for equal work as a boon for trial lawyers?
