Reading Cynthia Allen’s Thursday opinion, “The real war on women is insidious, degrading,” reveals to me that she is apparently against contraception, abortion, feminists, The New York Times, progressives, probably Democrats in general and all those who want women to control their own bodies and get equal status in our country, including equal pay for equal work.

When I read this from an Editorial Board member, it reinforces my belief that the Star-Telegram now pretty much agrees with the Tea Party and right-wing Republicans. I suppose that is their right and privilege, but since it is the only newspaper in town there is absolutely nothing I can do about it. I don’t have to be happy about it either.

Cynthia M. Allen so eloquently said in her column regarding the so-called “war on women” things that I have been been wanting to put into words for my grandaughters and nieces.

The so-called “war on women” is blamed on one particular party, but as you have so eloquently stated, it is actually an insidious message hidden in the opposite party’s “women’s issues and reproductive rights.”

I hope more educated women will wake up to the truth that you have revealed in your timely and much appreciated column.
