In a closed-door conference meeting on Wednesday, Cantor told one GOP member that if they blocked the Senate-passed Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) from coming to the floor, they’d cause “civil war” in the ranks. [National Review]

THE TIMING of the PBS documentary “MAKERS: Women Who Make America” is perfect, which is also accompanied by a terrific interview of Judy Woodruff with Gloria Steinem, which is below.

If you watch “MAKERS” you’ll remember, or perhaps learn for the very first time, why all of this matters so much.
