POLITICAL FALLOUT

May 19, 2000

In a stunning defeat for women this week, the Supremes invalidated a small portion of the Violence Against Women Act (but NOT its programs or services), declaring that gender-motivated violence is not economic - even though the cost to women is estimated at $3 billion a year. The ruling was 5-4, carried by the conservative majority. The next President will appoint at least two more judges -- 'nuff said. (WFF 5/19/00)
