Dear Editor:
Ninety-five years after American women won the vote, 167 years after women began fighting for it; in a country where women earn 22 percent less than men, where women are stereotyped and maligned merely because they act like women, and where women bear the weight of most childrearing and caregiving; in a world in which women are enslaved, mutilated, denied education, married in preadolescence… I was appalled to read (in “Letters to the Editor,” August 23 issue, Secaucus Reporter) that “an imaginary war on women” has been “created by the Democratic Party.” Shame, shame on you, Mr. Amato.

M. LaRue,
