Essential Estrogen: Obama Launches Listening Tour for Women's Issues

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

The morning noise level at the Blue Strawberry in Cedar Rapids didn't
seem bother Chicago attorney Judy Gold or the local women who came to
discuss Illinois Sen. Barack Obama and his bid for the White House.
Gold, who served as chief of policy for Chicago Mayor Richard Daley
and chairwoman of the Illinois Commission on the Status of Women, is
an attorney in private practice. She came to Iowa, however, as a
listening ear for the Obama campaign, which she serves officially as
the chairwoman for the Women's Policy Advisory Group. Thirteen women
came to this session of the "Hear from the Heartland" listening post
and spoke about everything from recent Women's Equality Day activities
to the issues of health care and education to the war in Iraq. Most of
those in attendance, however, seem to have women's issues -- in
particular the issue of women's reproductive health -- at the front of
their thoughts.
