The First Wives Club: Michelle Obama vs. Ann Romney on Women
This week Ann Romney defended husband Mitt, who's been in hot water for saying his "job is not to worry" about the 47 percent of Americans who don't pay income taxes. In the interview, she said, "I know the guy, I know him really well, I know he cares, and that's why we're running," adding that he brings "more certainty to more Americans, especially to women."
Ann and her rival counterpart Michelle Obama are both supporting their husbands in a big way in this presidential election's battle for the female vote. Michelle Obama's speech was one of the major highlights of the Democratic National Convention. At the podium she addressed the president's stance on women's health care, saying, "He believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care." Then at the Republican National Convention, Ann Romney kicked off her speech with "I love you, women! And I hear your voices."
Michelle has spoken out about various women's issues over the years, from breaking the glass ceiling to the plight of military wives, while Ann has opened up about her background as a stay-at-home mom and focused on how women care about the economy. Let's see how these ladies compare on the issues we care about with their quotes on women.
